Humans in the Natural Environment

“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.”  --John Muir

This thread models the interconnectedness of the living community by asking students to examine scientific constructs and cultural interpretations of the natural environment from a variety of disciplinary perspectives, and in global historical, social, and political contexts.  By exploring themes of connection, expression, change, resilience, accountability, and sustainability, and through community engagement and active participation in natural settings, students should develop a sense of agency and urgency in helping to address vital environmental issues.
