The Department of Forestry and Natural Resources is one of fourteen academic departments in the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment. It was established in 1969 with primary responsibility for academics, extension, and research programs in forest and wildland natural resources.

What is Forestry?

Forestry is the science, art, and practice of sustainably managing forested resources for the benefit of humans.

Kentucky Snake Identification

Snakes are perhaps the most maligned animals in Kentucky. Yet these animals have fascinating life histories, exhibit beautiful color patterns and play critical ecological roles in Kentucky’s environment.
