Natural Resources / Environmental Studies, Ecology and Conservation

Students will develop the knowledge and skills to be effective decision makers, project planners, participants, and leaders in school and community activities that promote the sustainable use of natural resources.

Students will investigate topics in environmental stewardship, natural resources, and resource management through experiential, project based learning. Students will be encouraged to work collaboratively with fellow students as well as field and industry experts. Projects developed by students involve investigating current uses of natural resources through field-trips and analysis of the local environment, building working sustainable systems such as permaculture living walls and urban food gardens, and experimenting with possible future sustainable resource and energy systems.

Classes and detailed information:

  • Introductory Environmental Studies / Ecology and Conservation (8 credits available)
