Dates of Travel: August 14 – 22, 2015
The summer 2015 Forest Ecology class (BIO-1240-VM01) will have a special focus: comparing Vermont’s temperate mesic (medium-moist) forests with the temperate rainforests of the Pacific Northwest.
The class will culminate with a 9-day trip to Olympic National Park, where the students will conduct fieldwork in the Hoh Rainforest, which contains some of the biggest trees on the planet, and assist park biologists in restoring native trees to the Elwha River valley after the removal of two large dams.
Outdoor fieldwork is required for this course, both in Vermont and in Washington State. Fieldwork will include hiking while carrying backpacks so participants must have the ability to complete all physical aspects of the trip.
