Summer Field Course

Summer Field Course in Environmental Studies—Oregon Restoration Ecology

The University of Oregon is taking applications for its summer 2008 field course in restoration ecology. Past participants in this course have come from the University of Oregon, Oregon State University, UCLA, UC Berkeley, UC Davis, Humboldt State University, and the University of Washington. The course offers hands-on experience at ecological restoration projects in Central Oregon. Study sites range from the wet forests of the High Cascades to the juniper-sage scrub of the Oregon desert. A diverse faculty from the University of Oregon and Oregon State University instruct in restoration methods, invasive species, soils, geomorphology, and philosophy. The course is four quarter-credits, and runs from June 16-27, with final projects due via email on July 7. It is designed for upper-division students (juniors, seniors, and graduated seniors) and entry-level masters students from any academic institution. $525 covers tuition, fees, room, and board. For more information, including photos, student comments, a sample syllabus, and how to apply, visit www.uoregon.edu/~ecolrest.
