Nature Walks 101- Flora and Fauna
4 sessions, 8 hours
If you think you would enjoy knowing the names and stories behind some of our common flora and fauna, you’ll enjoy this course. In this field-based course, we will learn to identify common plants and flowers on sight, plants based on similar characteristics, and local birds by appearance and song. We will discuss complex relationships between plants, animals, and the environment. During the class we will take nature walks around campus and meet off-campus twice at the Monocacy Battlefield to enjoy some of the trails located within the park. Wear proper shoes and dress for the weather, please. All walks are considered easy and gentle. Students are required to provide their own transportation to the trail walk site.
