Summer 2015 field courses
This summer (2015), the Department of Biological Sciences will be offering three field-based courses primarily out of Maywoods Environmental and Educational Laboratory. Students will be allowed to reside in the lodge at Maywoods during each course free of charge.
BIO 599/799 Wetland Design and Restoration Techniques (2 credit hours)
Taught by Tom Biebighauser and Stephen Richter (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Students will receive training in how to design, restore/construct, and plant wetlands and will use this training to construct a large wetland at Maywoods. The class will meet 18-22 May at Maywoods (9:00-4:00). The course officially ends on 29 May, but the second week will consist of online content and assessments.
BIO 599/799 Field Ichthyology and Field Botany (4 credit hours)
Wildlife students can substitute these courses for Ichthyology (BIO 557) and Plant Systematics (BIO 335). Although the dates for the courses span four weeks (18 May-12 June), in-class time begins the second week. The first week (18-22 May) will consist of online content, readings, and assessment. Both courses will be taught based out of Maywoods for two weeks, 26 May–5 June, during which time Field Botany will meet 8-12:00 and Field Ichthyology 1-5:00. Additionally there will be an overnight field trip to Lilley Cornett Woods Appalachian Ecological Research Station from 8–10 June. The classes officially end on 12 June with 11-12 June being online work only.
