I have a degree in Wildlife Biology. Same boat! I specialized in animals, too, but habitat is important for conservation so I tried to stay competent in the realms of plants and soils.

Wildlife Biology, that's awesome you're into conservation of critters too! Image I did all of my classes online. I'm not sure what I was thinking, but I took a soil class in the winter once (Jan-March). All of our observations and experiments were supposed to be on our own soil samples. Well, that was pretty much impossible since the ground was frozen solid for those three months lol. So any of us with that issue had to do our work based on hypothetical samples. The professor said he was going to recommend to the college to not make that class available in the winter again lol. Image

I was the first class to have Dendrology in the early fall instead of winter. Previous classes had to identify plants using nothing but a few twigs. It was rough.

I had to do it myself, of course, once the temperatures dropped, but at least it wasn’t twigs and buds the entire semester.

That's good you got to have part the class before full winter hit. I def would have had trouble id-ing if all I had was twigs to look at lol. Image
