Ecosystems and biodiversity are at the heart of land stewardship and conservation. The acronym fits. As a land stewardship and conservation graduate you’ll be making a difference for plants, soils, water and wildlife. Not just for now, but for future generations. How you’ll do it is by learning practical field skills. Enough skills you'll be able to work in the field between 1st and 2nd year. In second year, you’ll focus on best management practices and stewardship techniques. You’ll learn how to renew, restore and or conserve anything from grasslands to forest.
