This course is a scientific yet sensitive examination of five of our nation’s most stunning National Parks: Glacier, Yellowstone, Tetons, Wind Cave, and Badlands. Ecological principles will be studied through an extensive camping experience during which each student will participate in a minimum of 90 hours of instruction. The field portion of this course will take place from 7/12 or 7/13 – 8/1/19.
It is our sincere hope that during this experience the student will become an integral part of the area they are studying. Emphasis shall be placed on viewing and understanding our national parks as diversified ecosystems and their relevance and importance to the biosphere today. Students are required to attend a series of pre-trip lectures/seminars plus read material covering basic ecological principles. After completion of the field work the students will complete a final journal focusing on basic ecological principles related to the parks visited. This journal may be tailored to the specific interests and needs of each student per permission of the faculty.
