About NR 085 Z7

In this course, we will study of the relationships among ecological, physical, and social processes within a particular area. We will use the lens of landscape ecology to focus on the concept of ?place" as the geographic setting where nature and culture intertwine and unfold through time. Using the Burlington landscape as our classroom, we will spend this field-based course building up our understanding of the biophysical landscape - from bedrock geology to soils, plants, animals, and climate. We will concurrently explore how our human actions both past and present impact other the biophysical system, and reflect on how we can live sustainably within our places. Students will leave the course with an understanding of the natural and cultural history of the Burlington area, and will have the tools to explore landscapes in other regions. We will build skills to be able to use online and library references to explore site-specific characteristics of the landscape.
