Environment & Nature
Whether renewable or not, natural resources deserve our attention. The University of Arkansas System's Cooperative Extension Service is in the business of educating the public about sustaining, maintaining, restoring, improving, conserving, and preserving our environment and natural resources. We work with agriculture and timber producers; private landowners; homeowners; local, state, and federal governments; community and non-profit organizations; 4-H youth; and individuals about environmental and natural resource topics:
We also provide education to professionals in natural resource fields for continuing education credits.
No one can take for granted the quality and quantity of our water, clean air and fertile soil. Through programs such as Arkansas Discovery Farms, the University of Arkansas System's Cooperative Extension Service works side-by-side with our ranchers, farmers and landowners to ensure all of our natural resources are preserved for future generations. Water quality monitoring, as pictured to the right, is one way we use technology to monitor impacts of conservation practices on water systems.
