Department of Environmental Sciences

The University of Wisconsin–Extension Department of Environmental Sciences (DES) is an academic department composed of faculty at the Wisconsin Geological and Natural History Survey. Faculty in the DES conduct applied and basic research on a wide variety of topics in the general fields of geology, hydrogeology, and biology; teach and provide assistance to clients in the classroom and the field; and play an active role in the faculty governance of the University of Wisconsin–Extension. Some of the faculty members also hold appointments in academic departments on the University of Wisconsin–Madison campus.
