Students, faculty, and researchers get their hands dirty measuring, mapping, modeling, analyzing, and deploying solutions in The School of Forest Resources and Environmental Science. Our bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs in forestry, wildlife ecology and management, environmental science, biotechnology and molecular genetics, forest biomaterials, and geospatial technology prepare students for sustainable careers that sustain our environment.

We study, educate, and care for more than 5,000 acres of University forests on Lake Superior’s shore. We're a scholarly community on a first-name basis—ready to help students grow in research and create a career focused on the challenges facing our natural world.
