Fall 2023 Courses
TOPICS IN REPRESENTATION
Guided by a collaborative mission inspired by the work of Test Plot. “Site Work” is a hands-on collaborative that aims to get students, faculty, and community members working each week at a local test site clearing, planting, and caring for the land using experimental restoration ecology techniques that improve biodiversity and habitat creation. Students will learn about the relationships among seeds, soils, habitat fragmentation, land use education, and human labor. While the goal is to learn by doing, students can choose from tasks that vary in physical ability. We will learn from visiting experts, the living beings and tools we collaborate with, and our own observations.
Open to Graduate Students.
