If you don't yet have summer plans - consider this outdoor opportunity! Wildlands Studies still has a few spaces available in their upcoming summer programs and they encourage students to apply soon! Wildland Studies welcomes students to join them in Belize, Australia, Yellowstone, Big Sur and the Channel Islands in California, and Vancouver Island in Canada. All of the programs provide hands-on, applied learning and direct research experience to students while living in a backcountry wilderness setting. The courses offer between 5-15 quarter credits provided through Western Washington University.
Please share this program information with anyone who would be interested, and invite them to check out their website! Each program has a full project description and photos on the field project webpage.
They still have a couple spaces in their 2016 Fall Peru Project as well. If you or anyone who know may be interested, contact Leslie Arutunian (the Director of Wildlands Studies) at 831-684-9999 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep in mind that courses taken outside of the ENVS department must be petitioned to count as an ENVS substitution and there is no guarantee that they will be approved.
Come to the ENVs advising office for more info.
