Public lands are managed to accommodate and perpetuate a wide range of environmental, social, and economic values.
This Certificate will allow students to focus on the origins of national parks, forests, and refuges and to study the tools and techniques land managers use to provide ecosystem services to the public.
These tools will allow students to develop an understanding of regulatory and policy issues, the use of remote sensing and geographic information systems technology, and the application of land preservation and protection strategies.
Upon completion of this program, the student will be able to:
- List the federal, state, and local agencies that manage public lands in the U.S.
- Explain the regulatory, policy, and political influences on public lands management.
- Develop management strategies for the management of public lands that balance competing needs and uses.
- Describe the techniques and strategies used to manage fish and wildlife resources on public lands.
- Evaluate land use, development, and management plans within and adjacent to public lands.
- Assess the current status of public lands and its contribution to the social and environmental sustainability of the U.S.
