The Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources and the UGA Career Center will host a “Careers in Natural Resources” discussion panel  Jan. 30 at 6 p.m. in room 150 of the Student Learning Center. Students from across the UGA community are invited to come and learn how to plan for a future career in natural resource science and/or management.

Several natural resource professionals, who are also graduate students of the Warnell School, will participate in the panel to discuss their jobs and what students should do if they are interested in a career in natural resources management and science. Panelists will include Amanda Newman, a graduate student in the wildlife program, and Adam Speir, a graduate student in the water and soil resources program. Newman has worked for the U.S. Geological Survey, Forest Service, and Fish and Wildlife Service, as well as Parsons Engineering. Speir has worked for the Georgia Water and Planning Policy Center, Georgia State Soil and Water Conservation Commission and F&W Forestry.
