Excel Wildlife / Natural Resource Management
One of the rich natural resources in the State of Minnesota is an abundance of wildlife species. The preservation and management of this precious resource requires a set of values and a balance perspective by the citizens of the state. Habitat management and an understanding of the characteristics of the various species can prevent their starvation, disease, and death. Education is a key component to bring all perspectives together in providing an informed citizenry on the ways and means of wildlife / natural resource management. The course content ranges from an historical perspective on various species, their characteristics and life cycles, habitat needs, habitat management, benefits wildlife provides communities, and the use and preparation of harvested game species. Students are expected to be active learners throughout each instructional unit. They will be expected to debate the issues surrounding the management of various species. This course is expected to contribute to the reality of learning through the management of wildlife / natural resources.
