academics research extension



LSU and the LSU Agricultural Center have a long tradition in natural resource education, research and extension, beginning with the first forestry class in 1911 and continuing to the present School of Renewable Natural Resources. The importance of this program is based on the $4 billion annual economic impact to Louisiana from natural resource commodities (e.g., timber harvesting, wood products, recreational hunting, hunting leases, recreational and commercial fishing, etc.).

I invite you to contact either myself or any of our faculty members for more information about our academic, research or extension programs.
