This course was coordinated by Professors Roel Boumans and Jon Erickson. It took place Aug. 25-29, 2003.

This new course was designed to introduce new graduate students to Vermont and Vermont issues. The course presented multi-disciplinary exposure to a range of questions drawn from emergent, field-based problems. Students were introduced to concepts, perspectives, and methods from both natural and social sciences while visiting a wide variety of Vermont locations. The introductory character of the course also helped students become oriented within the integrated academic and social contexts of the School of Natural Resources.

Each day of the course was thematically based on different locations/land uses found in the Lake Champlain watershed. Follow the links from the map to explore our activities. Click here for information on course participants.
