The S.J. & Jessie E. Quinney College of Natural Resources employs teaching, research, and extension programs to better understand our natural ecosystems and to foster the sustainable use of our resources. Our programs integrate across biological, physical, and socioeconomic aspects of ecosystems, with the goals of advancing scientific knowledge relevant to natural resources, producing effective future leaders in both research and management arenas, and translating research findings into management practices.
