New Undergraduate Course Added for Fall 2015

New Course for Fall!

EES 217: Acadia Lessons Project: Field Problems in EES

DSC00051This course is an intensive hands-on field research experience for EES majors. EES undergraduates will stay at the Schoodic Education and Research Center at Acadia National Park for a 2.5-day weekend program that will immerse them in Acadia’s rich science and cultural research history, then challenge students to assess and highlight future challenges and approaches to the next century of National Park science and management. The location provides a setting rich with opportunities for outdoor experience, interactions with scientists in residence, and varied local, regional, and national stakeholders with whom we will collaborate on the Lessons Project. Students will travel to the Schoodic campus by bus, leaving UMaine Friday afternoon and returning to campus Sunday evening. This course will be required for EES majors that begin the program Fall, 2015, but students currently in their second and third year are strongly encouraged to enroll.
