EICC Conservation Tech Program

Conservation Technology is a 2-year degree program offered by Muscatine Community College that prepares you for success in a number of conservation-based careers. With growing interest in the environment, a lack of comparable programs locally, and with the potential for job growth in this area, the time is right to start this program.

  • Conservation Scientists
  • Environmental Scientists
  • Conservation Technicians
  • Foresters
  • Naturalists/Environmental Educators                                                                        
  • Outdoor Recreation Technicians
  • Fishery Technicians
  • Wildlife Biologists
  • Botanists
  • Soil Conservationists
  • Watershed Coordinators

The program is administered through MCC, but the majority of the courses are offered at Nahant Marsh Education Center. Nahant is an excellent place for this program because it is centrally located and there is direct access to the Mississippi River. Our partnerships with various local organizations will give students the opportunity for a wide array of experiences.
