This course is a service-learning intensive biology course where students learn about the ecology of prairies, the importance of prairie ecosystems, and techniques to preserve and restore prairies. The course will be a hybrid course where much of the content will be delivered in an on-line format with one-day-a-week meetings to participate in field trips and stewardship projects. Due to the service learning and environmental aspects of the course, students must be able and willing to perform light labor (on the level of gardening) and a moderate amount of hiking, and be able to attend an extended field trip once during the semester. The 4-credit laboratory science requirement under general education is fulfilled by taking this class and its complementary fall offering, BIO 110.


Course Fee: $45.00 Biology Lab
