The Natural Resources (NR) program at College of the Desert is a gateway to many different environmentally-focused careers in such fields as: wildlife management, ecosystem management, wildlife ecology, landscape
ecology, parks and recreation planning, environmental consulting, GIS (Geographic Information Systems), natural resources law enforcement, forensic entomology, urban planning, alternative energy, and many more. Transfer students who wish to prepare for four-year colleges will find not only the coursework but also the practical experience required for their majors and fields of interest.
NR programs also serve students who wish to enter directly an environmentally-related occupation (e.g., park
ranger, zookeeper) upon completion of the two-year associate’s degree. For more information please call (760) 773-2571.
