The Blue Mountain Field Science is a week-long course for 26 high school students interested in the natural sciences. Students will learn about the geological and biological processes that have shaped the unique landscape of Walla Walla County through daily outdoor field study. Each day, students will visit locations around the region that will involve experiential, hands-on learning. Course instruction is provided by Whitman College faculty Tim Parker (Biology & Environmental Studies) and Nick Bader (Geology).
Students who participate in Blue Mountain Field Science will be steeped in exploration of the natural environment, giving real-life meaning to academic learning while deepening their understanding of the natural world.
Blue Mountain Field Science is for students looking to explore environmental systems while honing their field research skills, all in the beauty of the Columbia River to the Blue Mountains.
