Natural Resource Institute

June 9-10, 2021

In partnership with ND Natural Resources Trust, North Dakota Forest Service and Project Learning Tree


Natural Resource program faculty at Dakota College have designed a 1-credit Natural Resource Management course for K-12 teachers and informal educators focusing on forests. This two-day institute is one of several annual trainings which will:

  • Familiarize you with the value of trees as a natural resource
  • Learn how to perform a forest inventory through tree identification and tree measurements 
  • Educate you about the applications of conservation techniques in the study of natural resources
  • Provide teachers with cross curricular resources, lessons and classroom ready activities related to environmental education.
  • Build capacity for educators to transfer the institute’s field studies to practical classroom applications.

Join us in Bottineau for an opportunity to experience current forest management and forest resource issues of North Dakota. While exploring the issues and identifying solutions, participants will receive real world, user friendly and classroom ready instruction from specially trained Project Learning Tree facilitators, resource professionals, and scientists. Participants transfer the institute’s field studies to practical classroom applications. Participants will experience hands-on, minds-on learning through a balance of presentations, discussions, activities, field tours, and environmental investigations.
