Fish and Wildlife Management student James Young discovered this Hellbender, a giant salamander, during an aquatic ecology class.

"According to the June 14, 2010 issue of Community College Weekly, HCC was ranked number 5 in the nation as the top degree producer for Natural Resources and Conservation."

North Carolina has over 18 million acres of forestland. These vast forests support diverse flora and fauna. The Natural Resources department has Technical programs training students for tomorrow's environmental workforce. Located in mountainous Western N.C., Haywood County is home to outdoor recreation of all kinds and a small town lifestyle.

Many of HCC's Natural Resource Programs also have many long-running articulation agreements with 4-year institutions including NC State, Va Tech, Univ. of Tennessee, Western Carolina University, and University of Idaho. If transfer is of interest, more information is available.
