ENV 211 - The Chesapeake Bay Watershed Service Learning


Credits: 4
Planned Offering: Spring

This course is intended to create a community partnership between Washington and Lee University's Program in Environmental Studies, Boxerwood Nature Center, and the Natural Bridge Soil and Water Conservation District. The partnership will serve the Rockbridge County School system by supporting classroom curriculum with experiential opportunities that will encourage a more complete understanding and appreciation of the watershed and promote responsible stewardship. The course will prepare students to conduct meaningful watershed investigations that address significant issues pertaining to local watershed and the Chesapeake Bay. The course will highlight both natural and cultural entities that influence water quality in the Bay watershed. Students will participate in service projects that will draw connections between water quality and use and ultimately gain a greater understanding of the Chesapeake ecosystem, including how a sense of place and service play a role in environmental stewardship.
