Note: #102732 DEATH VALLEY: Escape the cold winter rains of San Jose and come explore the hottest place on Earth-when it isn't quite so hot. Death Valley, our nation's largest national park (outside of Alaska), is rich in both human and natural history. While there you'll hike desert canyons, dunes and mountain overlooks, and to the lowest point in North America. You will study the human history and natural history, the colorful rock formations and colorful characters, and the ghost towns and mines that make the region unique. The park is a geologist's, prospector's and moviemaker's dream: Death Valley has been a scenic backdrop for a multitude of commercials and films, including Star Wars.
Our studies will emphasize the unique area of Death Valley, but the principles covered in this course have application and, hopefully, meaning for students that extend well beyond the boundaries of this one national park. This course entails active student participation including hiking and camping. Enroll in Biol-080D and join us-see what the excitement is all about!
