Extended Field Trip
When the world becomes your classroom
Briar Cliff students have participated in short-term study tours of Hawaii, the Pacific Northwest, Galapagos, and Costa Rica. They have returned with an understanding of these destinations far beyond what could be gleaned from a textbook, lecture, or documentary.
This course will cover
- the ecological contexts of the places visited
- environmental challenges facing these regions
- topics that will vary according to destination, yet typically include native flora and fauna, geological processes, endangered and endemic species, biogeography, threats to biodiversity, and ecotourism
Grade typically based on
- one test
- trip journal
- post-trip questions
