Secondly, the woodlands can help in providing wood for construction purposes in the university and also provide furniture for the student's lecture hall. However, this must be done sustainably to avoid the destruction of the flora and the fauna that acts as a habitat for animals and plants (Klikauer, 2014). The environmental and the economic aspects of the woodland must be evaluated and a cost-benefit analysis conducted to ensure sustainability. The ecological benefits of the forest are that it acts as a habitat for wild animals, it absorbs noise, dust, greenhouse gases and carbon dioxide from the environment, releases oxygen to the atmosphere, provide sites for recreation for people and also provide shelter for livestock and people

NATURAL RESOURCE AND ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT 5 (Klikauer, 2014). The economical use includes sustainable production of timber, generate income from sporting activities, planting, and maintenance of the woodland provide create jobs for people. For this purpose to be viable, then the NGO in conjunction with the Ottawa University must ensure that when wood is cut down, later two more are planted to replace it (Klikauer, 2014). This will ensure that the woodland resource is not depleted while it sustainably provides livelihood and resources to the University of Ottawa. The third use is related to the greenhouse, and it supports the first potential use, that is, crop cultivation. To carry out a large-scale cultivation of crops then the greenhouse is essential in supplying the seedlings. A good example is tomatoes. The tomatoes can be grown in greenhouses during winter and later be planted when it is warm (Mitchell, 2014). This will ensure that the 50 acres of the fields are used although the seasons for farming purposes. The river will be used for irrigation purposes during the dry period. But since the greenhouse release gases that are harmful to the ozone layer, the woodland will help in absorbing the gages and thus making the air clean. Finally, the chicken coop can be used in rearing hens. The hens will get food from the crops that are being cultivated in the field and water from the stream. The hens will lay eggs that can be sold for financial benefits or can be used within the university. Consequently, the hens will contribute to the ecosystem since their waste products can be used as for prepare farmyard manure which is natural as compared to chemical fertilizers (Mitchell, 2014). Section 3: Future Management Consideration The current state of natural resources reveal the due to the rapidly increasing world population, and the natural resources are at risk of being depleted due to overexploitation by the current generation (Salomone, 2013). Water as a universal resource is getting limited, soil

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
