Natural Heritage Graduate Student Residency Program Where are they now?

The IL DNR, Division of Natural Heritage and Illinois Nature Preserves Commission are proud of the Residency Program and the successes that former Residents have had in securing scarce jobs in natural resources fields.  Residents have found meaningful employment with a wide variety of local, state, and federal natural resource agencies, not-for-profit organizations, and for-profit companies nation-wide.
