Natural Resources University
Natural Resources University is a podcast network focused on delivering science-based natural resources information to landowners and managers. This network builds off the successes of the Deer University podcast (Mississippi State) and is a result of a RREA Focus Grant.
The network includes 4 podcasts lead by various extension specialists. And each podcast focuses on natural resource topics relevant to landowners and managers.
Deer University – An educational podcast focusing on the science of deer – all topics center around deer ecology, biology, and management. Hosted by Bronson Strickland and Steve Demarais, Mississippi State University
Fire University – A science-based podcast covering the latest research in fire ecology and how it relates to management of wildlife and plant communities. Hosted by Marcus Lashley, University of Florida
Habitat University – A podcast about the science behind wildlife habitat management. Hosted by Jarred Brooke, Purdue University, and Adam Janke, Iowa State University
Pond University – A podcast that brings together aquatic scientists, landowners, and pond professionals to discuss topics such as pond habitat, fish stocking, vegetation control, and pond construction. Hosted by Mitch Zischke and Megan Gunn, Purdue University.
You can listen to any of the podcasts wherever you get your podcasts (Apple, Spotify, etc.). We are hoping to continue to grow the network to include various other natural resources topics relevant to landowners and managers. And many of you might see an email in your inbox in the near future about joining us on one of the shows as a guest.
