Field Trip #1: Putah Creek Essay Prompt: You are a vigorous 70-75 years old and taking the same route along the four Putah Creeks that you traveled in 2007, at the same time of year. Provide a narration that contrasts what you are seeing with what you saw in 2007. You are free to imagine the four areas having changed in any way you wish, from a complete wilderness to a paved cityscape. You may want to make the future Putah Creeks look the way you think they should look in the best of all possible worlds or you may want to take a much more pessimistic point of view. No matter what comparison you make, you must describe what you saw this year. Be sure to turn in your field notes with your paper. It is now the year 2055 and several months after my 70 th birthday. I recall some 50 years ago walking this same route back in my first college year at UC Davis. During that first quarter, the professor for a class I was taking on wildlife assigned a field trip project that seemed ridiculous at the time and just a way to get us to drop the infamous freshman 15. But as I retrace my steps from that time, I now see why it was important. The scene around here has changed so much. Going back 50 years, I remember seeing a real effort to conserve the wildlife and plants in the area. While there were several signs of human modification and there was much that could have been improved on in terms of conservation efforts, I also observed abundant native wildlife and plants.

    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.
