Camryn wasn’t sure what he wanted to do in the natural resources field when he enrolled in the Natural Resources Management program, he just knew he wanted a career connected to the outdoors.
Fortunately for him, there were plenty of options.
“They gave us real perspective and showed us that there’s more to natural resources than just being a game warden,” Camryn said. “There’s so much you can do.”
While at Hawkeye, Camryn was able to meet with graduates now working in the field, learning about careers ranging from fisheries to forestry to land management. Activities like planting seed lots, controlled prairie burns, and working with rehabilitated trumpeter swans gave him hands-on experience.
“Because of Hawkeye I have a well-developed resume,” Camryn said.
After graduation, Camryn is off to a summer internship at the Calkins Nature Area near Iowa Falls, then he’ll begin work full-time for a private landowner near Waterloo, managing mitigation projects and maintaining wetlands and forest.
