Our Signature Experience:
Fall Camp

Fall Block—also known affectionately as “Fall Camp”—is taken during the fall semester of senior year by students in all concentrations except for wildland recreation in the Forestry major, and wildlife health in the Wildlife and Fisheries Science major.

Fall Camp is an intensive set of classes that are taken together and taught in a block format, meaning that students participate in these courses all day long, spending most of their time learning in a field environment.

Students will receive hands-on training in their respective areas of study, team-building skills, and a wide variety of other forestry or wildlife and fisheries management skills. These skills are explained in the classroom and taught in the field. Many students feel that Fall Block is the most important part of their education.
