The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point (UWSP) College of Natural Resources (CNR) will offer a wildland fire science program starting in the fall of 2013.
UWSP will be one of a handful of schools nationally to offer the program and the only school in the Midwest to offer it.
“It’s a little bit of forestry, a little bit of wildlife, a little bit human dimensions of resource management, a little bit natural resources, a little bit policy and a little bit meteorology,” said Paul Doruska, CNR associated dean of academic affairs. “We’re the perfect spot to put that together.”
