474 Students Visit the Natural Reserve Classroom

Week Two of Fall Quarter 2014 was a big one for getting students out into our grand Campus Natural Reserve outdoor classroom here at UCSC. All of the following classes had on-campus field trips where students were able to explore living examples of their course content:

  • General Ecology (ENVS 24; 198 students in 10 sections) 
  • Development and Physiology (BIOE 20B; 98 students in 6 optional hikes)
  • Collaborative Learning (KRSG 72/172; 120 students in a one big group!)
  • Jack Mazza's Senior Project, the Natural History of UCSC Field Group (15 students)

In addition, 3 stewardship interns, 13 Forest Ecology Research Plot interns, 2 plant photo library interns, education/art/outreach intern, and 24 College 8 freshman during the C8 Sustainability Project worked on projects on the Campus Natural Reserve. Indeed a big week--474 students in total! Thanks to all for participating, and we hope to see you out there.
