ENVS 195 Natural History of Centennial Woods

Ski slopes, army bunkers, abandoned beaver ponds, pine plantations, mile-high glaciers, and a multitude of other characters have all played a part in shaping what we now know as Centennial Woods. In this field-based class we will take an in-depth look at the 65-acre natural area embedded within a much larger matrix of rivers, highways, houses, and power lines. While learning how to tell the story of a landscape from what we still see, we will calibrate and attune our own senses to perceiving change as it happens and as it has happened. All classes will be conducted in the field. Contact instructor for meeting place. For more info email: badger.meli@gmail.com.
