Our Environment + Your Passion = NC State Department of Forestry & Environmental Resources

I want to be a leader in managing populations
of fish, so that I can help provide people around the world with the aquatic resources
and the food that they need. I really want to work in the public health
and safety field. I think it’s important to educate people and make them more aware
of how much the environment affects their daily lives. I want to work for the U.S. Forest Service
so I can protect the great forest we have in the US. So many forest are being destroyed
due to pest, invasive species and acid rain and I want to stop that from happening! I hope to remediate water resources so people
and wildlife have clean water they can drink and depend on. I hope to be in the field conducting research
on habitats and ecosystems, so I can spark policymakers to make decisions which will
protect wildlife species. I hope I can inspire my community to value
their environment so that natural resources are around for generations to come. I want to help children understand their natural
world and equipped them to make informed decisions about natural resource management. My name is Thomas Harris. Emily Forbes. Ethan

I’m a senior in Natural Resources. Forest Management. Environmental Technology & Management.
Fisheries, Wildlife and Conservation Biology. In my first semester I was able to get out
into the field and remove invasive species from a trail. And measure and sample trees! In hazwoper class, we got to do a mock scenario
on campus, where you got to go out and set up decontamination tables and put on the [hazmat]
suits and go out and assess a fake spill. In dendro [dendrology] lab, we take long walks
through the woods learning everything about every tree in North Carolina! Or at least
180 of them! In wildlife summer camp we do: mist-netting,
wildlife id, dendrology, electrofishing, fish id, trawling, river assessments, habitat management
and stream management. It’s all really intense. We’re always active and it’s a lot of
fun. It’s our job to assess the impacts of our
actions. We have a responsibility to future generations to develop land in sustainable
ways that are good for both people, ecosystems and the wildlife within them.
