School of Forest Resources & Conservation: Agencies & Associations

This guide supports the School of Forest Resources & Conservation at the University of Florida.

SFRC Extension

The School’s Extension Programs are coordinated by faculty and staff with active extension programs in ecotourism, fisheries and aquatic sciences, forest stewardship, forest health urban forestry, wildland-urban interface and youth education. Our aim is to expand current programs to emphasize non-traditional uses of forests, ecological functions of forests and water resources, wildland-urban interface issues, and integration of our forest and aquatic extension programs. Much of this is achieved with resources generated through creative partnering and grants.

UF Water Institute

The overarching goals of Water Institute research, education, and outreach programs are to:

  • Improve basic knowledge of the physical, chemical, and biological processes in aquatic systems (rivers, lakes, oceans, estuaries, wetlands, soil, and ground waters).
  • Enhance understanding of the interactions and interrelationships between human attitudes and activities, and aquatic systems.
  • Develop and promote the adoption of improved methodologies for water management and policy (including quantity, quality, and ecosystem services) based on a foundation of science, engineering, management, and law.
