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. Prerequisite: ENVS 1 or NR 1 or GEOG 40. All classes will be conducted in the field. Contact instructor for meeting place. For more info email: badger.meli@gmail.com. Enrollment Limit: 15.
