Introduction to Field Studies (NRM 2203)  orients students to the climate, ecology, geology, hydrology, soils, vegetation and wildlife unique to the Chihuahuan Desert of Southwest Texas. Students will experience, explore and learn in Big Bend National Park, Big Bend Ranch State Park, and on other protected public and private lands. The emphasis of this course is learning to keep a field journal while also learning to live and work safely in the field. Other topics covered include learning to work with maps, basic orienteering, and communication. Students also participate in a hands-on restoration project as part of the course and learn about careers in field science from scientists and expert practitioners.
