What is Ecological Planning?

Students at a field site

The ecological planning curriculum available through the Rubenstein School of Environment and Natural Resources at the University of Vermont is a two year master's level experience aimed at professionals pursuing careers in environmental conservation. Planning for conservation and preservation of natural areas, reserves, protected ecosystems, and the more natural components of our human influenced landscapes, requires special understanding of both ecological systems and social systems at various scales. To provide both the intellectual and the field experience necessary to achieve this understanding, this curriculum is dominated by field courses in the early part of the program followed by planning, research, and integration coursework. In addition, skills in field measurements, speaking, writing, team work and problem solving are key components of this curriculum.
