This field class will explore the geography of the American River Canyon. The class is intended to introduce students to river processes and how human activity in the river canyon has altered the way that the river "works". Some light hiking is required. The class will meet four times, twice on the EDC campus in Placerville for pre and post-trip lectures and orientation, and twice for the actual field activity. The class will meet at the El Dorado Center campus on November 2 and November 30, with a field trip on November 3-4. Only students enrolled in the course and have signed the appropriate waivers and other documents may participate. Transportation will be provided by Folsom Lake College. Food and lodging arrangements and costs are the responsibility of the student. In some instances entrance fees may be required and those fees will be the responsibility of the student (Students who qualify due to a lack of sufficient funds may request the field trip fee be waived). For more information contact Professor Pittman at 916.608-6668 or email to pittmaj@flc.losrios.edu.
