The University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point is dedicated to educating the next generation of natural resource professionals through an experience-based curriculum. An example of this dedication is the coveted tradition/right of passage of Treehaven. All College of Natural Resource (CNR) majors must attend this six-week field experience techniques course in Tomahawk, Wisconsin. This rigorous experience entails two weeks of forestry courses, two weeks of soil courses, one week of a water course, and one week of a wildlife course. During this time, students are working directly with exert professors in their field while using the latest technologies available. Students going electroshocking in rivers and lakes to see the different species of fish present and estimate diversity, use Sherman traps to catch small mammals and estimate diversity, and timber cruise a 40-acre parcel of land to take an inventory and eventually create a mock auction of the parcel.
