ZOOL 476/575 - Field Natural History
Star number: 32785
A course designed to introduce students to the natural world surrounding them. Are you interested in being able to identify animals, plants, trees, and insects by sight and sound? Do you enjoy spending time outdoors and want to learn more about the local flora and fauna? Then this is the course for you! This course is designed for those students who want to obtain a greater understanding of the natural spaces in the Quad Cities and what makes this area truly unique from an environmental perspective. We will spend time outdoors exploring the rivers, forests, wetlands, prairies, and urban spaces. We will learn to identify organisms found in these areas, in addition to capturing and studying them. This is a great course for ANYONE interested in the outdoors, Education Majors who want to learn how to teach these subjects, and Biology and RPTA majors who are unable to take multiple field courses.
Permission of the instructor may be required.
