WHAT IS NATURAL RESOURCES MANAGEMENT?

Natural resources management is the practice of land stewardship of both public and private primarily forested lands for the outcome of reaching a balance of ecological sustainability, economic viability and societal acceptance. It is a science-based approach with a foundation in ecological health, best business practices, professional ethics, traditional values, transparency and multi-stakeholder participation.

Natural resources management focuses on all of the issues linked to healthy ecosystems coupled with human interaction such as habitation, economic resource extraction and recreation as well as the complexities of climate change adaptation. It includes the preservation of wildlife abundance, wildlife conservation, clean water, scenic aesthetics, respect for first nation issues and the continued best practice utilization of wood.

MISSION OF THE FACULTY OF NATURAL RESOURCES MANAGEMENT

The Faculty of Natural Resources Management is committed to producing high-quality graduates and scientists through student-centred learning and research, to enhancing the management of Canada's forested ecosystems, and to advancing forest science through scientific research to meet the need of society.

Today's natural resources management graduates are adaptable team players with professional attitudes, ethical behaviour and an appreciation for life-long learning.
