New College is the new home of the Natural Resource Management Minor. Dr. Carl Williams coordinates the program. The minor has an interdisciplinary, practice-driven focus that prepares students for professional opportunities in environmental monitoring, such as endangered species and wetland delineation, restoration of disturbed land, and management of forested lands and wildlife areas.

Dr. Williams and 12 students in the NRM minor volunteered in March at the 2014 Alabama’s Governor’s One Shot Turkey Hunt. The goal of the Governor’s Hunt is to showcase Alabama as a preferred destination for business, industry, and nature-based recreation. Another primary focus of this event is to fund scholarships for the School of Forestry and Wildlife Sciences at Auburn University and the College of Arts & Sciences at The University of Alabama.

The minor is open to students in the College of Arts and Sciences and in the Culverhouse College of Commerce. For more information, contact carl.williams@ua.edu.
