The minor in Ecological Restoration allows students in related majors to gain knowledge of the science and art of restoring ecosystems. This background is especially valuable to students who will be working in the various natural resource management fields. Since the prevalence of damaged, degraded or destroyed ecosystems is likely to increase in the future, restoration will be imperative for transforming these lands to once again provide ecosystem services.
Students are required to take NR 479: Restoration Case Studies, which includes a required field trip one week prior to the first day of the fall semester.
