Are you interested in a career in forestry, conservation, or natural resources? During the Camp Conservation: Exploring Your Future in Natural Resources Self-Paced Program, students in grades 7-12 will explore conservation and natural resource management issues and career possibilities. There has never been a better time to consider a career in a natural resources field.

What to Expect

This is a free, virtual program to learn aspects of forestry, such as tree identification, wildlife management, water quality, urban forestry, and forestry products. This asynchronous, self-paced, online program is designed to connect today’s learners with tomorrow’s career opportunities in stewarding natural resources. Each student is provided 24/7 access to materials crafted by experts in their respective field of natural resources. This non-facilitated program allows students to assimilate the information provided at their own pace and revisit as often as necessary.

This webinar will increase the student’s ability to PERFORM.

  • Problem Solve
  • Evaluate
  • Reason
  • Focus
  • Observe
  • Research a problem
  • Measure

Each student will receive a UESEP Environmental Explorers Completion Certificate at the end of the program. Let’s make learning and career development interesting by exploring future opportunities the natural environment offers. Join us to become an environmental explorer today.

Self-paced Program

From February 15 to April 15, each participant will be expected to review each module and complete the end-of-module assessment and end-of-program evaluation(s). If the participant fails to complete the modules within the allotted time frame, he/she can join the next scheduled start date. Please be advised that new content will be added to program modules at the end of each offering.

When: Available February 15 and ending April 15.
Where: The program will be available via the Canvas Web-based Learning Management System (LMS).
