Watershed Sciences Minor

Watershed science and management is an expanding field that involves managing the availability, quantity, and quality of water.  Many major metropolitan areas and smaller cities rely on forested watersheds to purify the necessary drinking water for their populations.  Many highly trained and dedicated professionals, knowledgable in hydrology, climates, and water sciences, are needed in coming years to be certain this necessary commodity is provided to the United States and the world's growing populations.
