The Ecology of the Methow – 8 Week Course

January 29 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Ecoology of the Methow

Ecology is the study of interrelationships in the natural world, between living things and with the Good Earth. It is a profound and awe-inspiring subject, although much of the interrelatedness is hidden from the eyes. A basic example is the oxygen in atmosphere; oxygen is a very reactive element and comprises 21% of the air only because photosynthesizers (plants, algae, cyanobacteria) constantly pump it into the atmosphere; without plants there would be no oxygen. In this course we will look into the ecology of the soil, of our rivers, ponds, forests, the shrub-steep, the alpine zone, and human ecology. Most evenings will include a lab session when we work with hands-on, earthy material. It will be a stimulating way to utilize long winter nights.

This class is held in the Education Station, Building #9.

Cost for the 8 week course is on a sliding scale – $0-$100.
