Mandatory Class Meetings (4) on FLC main campus:
5:30pm-6:50pm -- November 2, November 9, November 14, November 16, 2017


Required Overnight Trip: From 8:00am on Saturday, November 18, 2017 through approximately 8:00pm on Sunday, November 19, 2017.

Required one-day Field Trip (2) dates: November 4 and December 2, 2017.



This one-unit field course, taught by Dr. Fran Keller, provides an introduction to coastal and marine ecosystems including the Monterey Bay Aquarium and surrounding area, Point Reyes, and Bodega Bay. Regional mammals, birds, and invertebrates will be covered and we will explore the floristics, and algal community composition while hiking and traveling through the area. Students will learn how to conduct a field survey to measure species richness and diversity. The class includes one two-day field trip, two one-day field trips, and four class meetings. The four class meetings occur at the FLC-main campus on Thursday November 2, Thursday November 9, Tuesday November 14, and Thursday November 16. Each class meeting at FLC occurs from 5:30pm-6:50pm. A field station expense cost of $130.00 is due three weeks prior to the first day of class to cover the price of accommodations at Bodega Bay Marine Lab and meals at the BBML. Students who qualify due to a lack of sufficient funds may request the field trip fee be waived. Be prepared as coastal weather is often unpredictable and the course will continue regardless of weather. Students will be required to provide their own camping/bedding equipment (cooler, sleeping bag, etc.), field journals, and meals. An additional fee will be charged for the overnight fieldtrip (see above), and potentially other activities. Students may be required to provide their own transportation. Please contact Professor Fran Keller at kellerm@flc.losrios.edu for more information.
