The field study includes a 3-day tent-camping trip (tentatively scheduled for April 8-10, 2016) and a couple of 1-day trips (tentatively scheduled for March 4, 2016 and May 6, 2016). There will also be some Friday on-campus lab days from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM, (tentatively scheduled for February 19, 2016 and March 11, 2016). In addition, students will complete an individual 1-day trip of their choice. The required cost for the field trips, $35, must be paid to the Business Services office during the second week of the semester. This will be used to pay campground rental and entrance fees associated with the trips above.
