Natural Resources

The University of Wisconsin-Extension, in partnership with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources and other agencies and organizations, supports a Regional Natural Resources Program. This program includes a network of educators located throughout Wisconsin, with expertise in water resources, forestry, citizen engagement, process facilitation, and design and delivery of natural resource outreach materials. Our local Educators also work in tandem with local partners to deliver training and education on environmental resources, energy management, and land use.

Our Specialists in the Environmental Resource Center, work together with our local educators and partners to  promote informed decision making on natural resource issues in Wisconsin and nationwide by working in partnership with individuals, community leaders, and resource professionals to develop and deliver research-based educational programs and materials.

The Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey provides objective scientific information about the geology, mineral resources, and water resources of Wisconsin.
