Hello - I have twin sons in high school and one of them really wants to be a conservation officer, or otherwise work in nature. He is a tough, physically fit kid that can handle that part of the work. He is a B student, and weak in math. He is smarter than he is a good student, if that makes sense. Given we have twins, we are trying to keep our costs low, but still give our sons the opportunity of a college experience.
I've spent hours and hours looking for reasonably inexpensive choices that will provide him with a good education in wildlife conservation, but not be too rigorous on the math or too heavy on the technical science side. We live in Illinois.
Wisconsin Stevens-Point looks absolutely perfect, but I'm not sure if he will get into their Natural Resources program. I need a few more options. He would love to work in the mountain states if possible, but I think as long as we stay midwest or west with the school, that would be fine. Several schools in Missouri have these types of programs, but I have no idea how good they are.
Any ideas or help, given the above, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!
