    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    This course literally has decided the rest of my life. It has given me hands on experience. It put me to work and made it feel like fun. I formed bonds with every instructor. I was shown how to estimate sequestered carbon in trees and slash piles, how to write and edit my very first proposal in APA format, how to measure pollution levels in a lake, and I was taught basic succession concepts such as primary, secondary, and tertiary succession. My favorite parts were the educational dayhikes and the proposal I wrote on anything I want. I wrote it on xeriscaping. The bonds we shared? Those will continue to teach me for a lifetime.

    Course highlights:

    I covered that pretty well in the last essay, but here goes; I learned how to estimate sequestered carbon amounts in trees, basic succession concepts, manual planting and labor in the backcountry, and much more. I learned the different layers of soil, I wrote my first proposal, and learned how to reach out to professionals for advice and mentorship. I learned how to measure the depths of lakes, I learned how to collect data on animals, and, best of all, I learned that maintaining a strong bond between my peers and I is the very best way to learn anything, no matter what it is you may set out to do. When something feel magical, we pay more attention and do much better.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure that you like environmental science, bring your notebook, and keep a positive attitude.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this course because it is a thorough introduction to the challenges our environment faces today. I do think the course could have been taught in a more engaging manner. It would be nice to have more hands on experience helping the environment rather than simply learning about it from a textbook.

    Course highlights:

    The main highlights for me in this course were learning about population issues, water conservation, and power supplies. I gained a greater understanding of changes our country to make to conserve the environment.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Be sure to take notes in class and keep up with homework. Attendance is a large part of your grade, plus being in class will help you to do better on tests. Be creative with your portfolio! It is a great opportunity to learn about the environmental issues in another country.
