What is Reclamation?

Reclamation is the practice of restoration and management of lands disturbed in the process of utilizing the earth's natural resources. As such, reclamation is a distinct profession. Although a large part of reclamation involves restoration of highly disturbed lands, a significant portion deals with natural landscapes, agricultural lands, industrial and urban lands, as well as wetlands.

Students in the program learn practical skills through service learning projects and research.
