About Us

Florida Association of Natural Resource Extension Professionals (FANREP) is a state association of Extension Professional Associations of Florida (EPAF) whose membership consists of professionals working in environmental education, fisheries, forestry, wood sciences, range, recreation, waste management, water, wildlife, energy and related disciplines. Members are active and retired Extension employees at the county, regional, or state level. FANREP memberships are open to state and county faculty and staff working in the field of natural resources. Together, FANREP members create a network of professionals to support collaborative outreach and education programs focused on Florida’s natural resources.

Natural resources are vital to our economy and quality of life. Education is often touted as the key to effective, sustainable natural resource management. Natural resources extension work requires a variety of creative approaches to educating landowners, managers, decision makers, and youth.
