For environmental professionals, the best and most frequent opportunities to positively affect wildlife are through habitat management and protection. The objective of this course is to equip students to plan habitat management for birds and mammals of the northeastern states. This course will also address guidelines for integrating timber and wildlife management. The major course project is the development of a detailed wildlife management plan for a specific large parcel of land using the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture S.C.S. approach and including a budget showing potential for timber and cordwood sales to cover costs.
