NATURE: Introduction to Field Studies   NEW!

This four session short course will introduce students to the diverse habitats of the Greater Verde Valley region with special emphasis on understanding why these habitats exist where they do and the characteristic species found in each.

Participants will visit local wildlife sanctuaries and other natural areas, learn about the region’s plants and animals, and get a hands-on introduction to the art of birding and other aspects of natural history field studies. The class will focus on identification of local species and stress the interdependence of species within each habitat discussed. We will discuss opportunities to participate in natural history studies through a variety of citizen science projects.

Students will meet in the field the morning of each session to take advantage of wildlife activity and cooler temperatures, returning to the classroom mid-morning to expand on the day’s lessons. Binoculars will be available for use in the field.
