This course will provide a broad overview of current environmental issues, with a focus on global climate change; pollution and waste reduction; and human interventions that can reduce our impact on local and global ecosystems. Students will work on several projects in class:

  • A local wildlife census
  • Display and timeline of current climate-change issues
  • Display and/or timeline of current waste-management and reduction issues
  • One or more additional environmental topics, according to student interests.
