5 students participated in the three-day long trip. The special topics course was an introduction to the geology and ecology of the greater Yellowstone ecosystem and included post trip discussion.
Later this semester students will write about their experiences in a term paper and present what they have learned to the class.
Students camped at the Canyon Village Campground located in the park. Camping gave students the opportunity to directly experience the important principles of natural history and the many management issues the park faces today.
According to Bagley, students interested in ecology, geology, resource management and policy were able to investigate all these topics in one setting: the World’s First National Park.
Bagley has been traveling to Yellowstone every year since 1992. He says this is the first time he’s taught the special topics class in this format.
If you are interested in taking similar classes and/or would like to learn more about obtaining a bachelor’s degree in Natural Resources, contact Bagley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
