I feel incredibly fortunate to get to work with students in the field sciences programs (Conservation Management, Biology, and Environmental Science) at Upper Iowa University. We are able to get students outside and learning hands-on field techniques in specialized classes that are traditionally found at much larger universities. Our rural location in the Driftless Area of Northeast Iowa surrounded by bluffs, streams, forests, and rivers is perfect for making this happen. Alumni of our programs work for the Departments of Natural Resources, County Conservation Boards, the Fish & Wildlife Service, the Natural Resource Conservation Service, and many, many other places that help us learn more about and protect our planet.
