What will I learn?

Green River Natural Resources degree options will prepare you for immediate employment in forestry, water quality, wildfire, and park management as applied to natural resources. You may also further your education at universities with natural resources programs. Natural Resources technicians work outdoors on private, state and federal forestlands. They gather information, direct and inspect the work of others and explain land management activities to the public. They assist professional foresters, biologists and recreation managers. They utilize current technologies including Global Positioning Systems (GPS), laser measuring instruments, and current software in various applications.

This Geographic Information Systems degree option prepares graduates to work outside collecting data using electronic equipment such as Global Positioning Systems (GPS) or ArcPad, laser range-finders, and data-loggers. Students will also work inside at a computer, downloading the data collected into databases to produce Geographic Information systems (GIS) computer-generated maps for public and private entities. Requirements for field experience with this degree are consistent with the Natural Resources BAS agreement.
