Prerequisite: None.
Course Transferable to CSU
Hours: 24 hours LEC ; 144 hours LAB
Description: Ecology and natural history are covered in the field as well as birds, mammals, fish, insects, reptiles, and amphibians. Plants and geology will be studied and their interrelations investigated. The course will be offered in an appropriate area, and students will be responsible for providing their own lodging, meals, and necessary equipment. Camp sites will be available. This course is ideal for future teachers, parents, resource management majors, and those interested in the biological sciences. Units are awarded based on both lecture and laboratory (one unit per 18 hours lecture or 54 hours laboratory or a combination of lecture and laboratory hours). This course may be taken four times under a new topic or destination.

Natural History Field Study: Mojave Desert    2 units
Other Term: May 13 - June 3, 2011.
Hours: 18 hours lecture; 54 hours laboratory.
Dates:
Pre-trip meeting (Lecture): 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm, Friday, May 13 and Friday, May 20, 2011, on-campus in LIH 115.

Trip: Sunday, May 22 through Sunday, May 29, 2011.

Post-trip meeting (Lecture): 5:30pm - 7:30pm, Friday, June 3, 2011, on-campus in LIH 115.


Description:This field course explores the plants, animals, and landforms of the Mojave Desert and demonstrates wildlife surveying techniques. Accommodations are in a combination of outdoor tent camping for two nights and dorm-style housing for four nights at the Desert Studies Center (DSC) and one night at the Sierra Nevada Aquatic Research Lab (SNARL). Students will need to provide their own tents and bedding materials as well as meals when not at the DSC. At the DSC and SNARL students will need their own bedding materials. The course involves strenuous hikes in rocky desert environment conditions in temperatures above 100 degrees during the day. A field station expense cost of $300.00 is due three weeks prior to the first day of class to cover the price of accommodations at DSC and SNARL, meals at the DSC, campsite reservations, entrance costs to parks, and transport to the Center and field sites. An application packet must be completed for this class prior to receiving a permission number to add the course. The application packet will be available starting in the middle of the Spring 2011 semester from the instructor (David Wyatt). If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact David
Wyatt by email at wyattd@scc.losrios.edu.
