Field Component

Field study offers a unique learning experience. Many of the courses offered by the Natural Resource Science Department include a field component. As students progress through our program, they will gain field experience in a variety of areas including vegetation analysis, soil analysis, forest stand measurements, lake analysis, and vertebrate and invertebrate sampling techniques.

Field trips associated with our courses are numerous and diverse, and include visits to the Wells Gray Research Station, grassland, ecosystems, coastal and interior forest ecosystems, forest research stations, local ranches, a local sawmill, and a fish hatchery (locations may changes from year to year).

Program courses that usually have field trips include FRST 1120/1220, FRST 2000, FRST 2100/2200, FRST 2110, NRSC 3110/3210, NRSC 3170, NRSC 3250, NRSC 3260, NRSC 4020, NRSC 4030, and NRSC 4100.
