Course topics include:
· Watershed planning
· Pollution prevention
· Economic sustainability
· Overall environmental improvement

· Management techniques based on strong science and data
· Watershed Assessment and Tools, including data utilization, interactive Geographic Information Systems (GIS), and modeling programs.


These courses are delivered entirely over the Internet (i.e., can be taken from your home or office) and offered three times a year during fall, spring and summer semesters. Michigan State University is a national leader in providing education, information and ongoing services to communities and individuals involved in watershed planning.
