KBS's mission is to develop programs in research, education, and extension directed toward a comprehensive understanding of natural and managed ecosystems and the conservation of natural resources. KBS is a field site for ecological research not only because of its excellent facilities but also because of the exceptional diversity of field research sites that are readily accessible from the station.

    Description:

    Watershed management necessitates an interdisciplinary approach to problem solving, with law, policy, community development and resource economics issues contributing as much to solutions as engineering, biology, hydrology and chemistry. An effective watershed manager must understand the science behind water resources management and have skills in public relations, policy-making, and program evaluation. These courses have been developed in cooperation with the Department of Community Sustainability.  Three Key Concepts:

    • Partnerships with stakeholders affected by resource management decision
    • A geographic focus for management activities
    • Management techniques based on strong science and data.

    Michigan State University has a unique opportunity to meet this education/information and ongoing service role required in the watershed planning area.
