Department of Natural Resource Ecology and Management
Making the Most of our Natural Resources
The Natural Resources Ecology and Management Extension program works to benefit all Oklahomans through clean and abundant water; improved resilience of local economies; and sustainable wildlife, fish, and plant communities that are the essence of all enjoyable outdoor recreation. Both rural and urban Oklahomans benefit when our land, water, plant, and animal resources are maintained and managed well.
Within the NREM Department, Extension offers expertise in the fields of pond management, prescribed fire, range science, wildlife science and wood products. NREM Extension personnel develop and maintain mutually beneficial collaborations with other universities, government agencies, non-government organizations and private entities to enhance educational opportunities and programs. Additionally, NREM Extension provides natural resource educational opportunities to youth through various programs designed to promote good stewardship of our natural resources and build the leaders of tomorrow.
