EES 217 - Field Research Experience in Ecology and Environmental Sciences

This course is an intensive field experience for EES majors. EES undergraduates will stay at a remote site (e.g., Schoodic Education and Research Center at Acadia National Park) for an intensive multi-day program  that will immerse them in the rich science and cultural history that makes Maine a living laboratory for environmental issues.   Students will be challenged to identify and assess emerging issues in environmental science and natural resources management.  Students will be introduced to relevant problems or issues facing stakeholders in the field of ecology and environmental sciences, and will work in teams to research, synthesize, and present what they’ve learned. The field setting is rich with opportunities for outdoor experience, interactions with scientists in residence, and varied local, regional, and national stakeholders with whom they will collaborate.  This course is a required field experience for EES majors.

Course Typically Offered: Fall and Summer
