Welcome from the Dean

Founded in 1906 as the Peabody School of Forestry, the Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources is committed to providing teaching, research and outreach activities related to the conservation and management of our natural resources. Today 64 faculty and 100 support staff members are focused in fisheries and wildlife, forestry, geospatial information technologies, natural resource management, outdoor recreation and tourism, soil and water resources, and sustainability.  Our programs emphasize the understanding of managed ecosystems throughout Georgia and the world.

Warnell offers a variety of degrees including a Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, Master of Forest Resources, Master of Natural Resources and Doctor of Philosophy. With around 300 undergraduates and 190 graduate students, we provide training for those interested in careers across the spectrum of sustainable natural resources management.  Our alumni are highly successful and include CEO’s of industry-leading organizations as well as top administrators of important government agencies focused on natural resources.

Please carefully browse our Web site and become more familiar with our programs. If we can answer any additional questions, provide some information on sustainable natural resources management or help you in any way, please contact me.

Welcome and Go Dawgs!
