Logistics

Locations have been carefully selected to take advantage of each site’s uniqueness that might best illustrate the environmental issues for that session and with attention to the climate and time of year. Students should expect outdoor fieldtrips with a good amount of walking on rugged terrain.  All meals are included in your course fee during the Academy.
