BASF 451 - Multiple Resource Management

3 credits

Admission to the BAS-FRM program or instructor permission.

This course exposes students to other important fields of natural resource management that professional foresters often interact with. The first part of the course focuses on managing forest land for multi-use recreation. Topics will center around facility types and access: dispersed hiking and camping vs. managed campgrounds, and motorized vehicles vs. human-powered recreation. The concept of multi-use recreation will be emphasized as well as the contrast between recreation management of private lands vs. state and federal lands. The second part of the course will focus on the management of fire resources and how modern science has changed our understanding of fire in the ecosystem. Topics will center around how foresters manage: fire resilient forests, large incident management, suppression methods, biological and ecological impacts, and modern fire science and research.
