Habitat Contrasts 2020 (Scholarship)
July 20-21 | 1 credit
The landscape surrounding Idaho Falls is unsurpassed in all of North America. Known for its diversity in geology, biology, and ecology, the landscape is bordered on the west by the Snake River Plain, characterized by its stark, barren lava flows and sagebrush dominated landscape. To the east, the rugged Teton Range dominates the landscape, while on the north lies the spectacular Yellowstone Plateau. It would be difficult to find a more attractive landscape for the study of science! We’ll compare and contrast two of Idaho’s major ecosystems—deserts and mountains—as we explore and study the living and non-living and provide a wealth of field activities that can be adapted to any grade level. We’ll weave English, history, sociology, math, and art throughout the course. Participants must be able to hike one-half to two miles each day over rough terrain.
