PUTAH CREEK EXPLORATIONS is an interactive education project focused on the natural and cultural issues of Putah Creek. In this internship you will learn about the plants, animals, habitats, and people of the Putah Creek Bioregion and, working in teams with other students, turn that knowledge into hands-on science, art, and bioregional activities and adventures that stimulate active learning. Next, you will implement your activities with young people in and out of school and at the creek. Your project will directly contribute to an university outreach program for our region's youth.

A two quarter option is offered for students to continue and present activities created by various teams to area youth and school groups. Become a part of an ongoing environmental education program.

Transcript notation available. Grad students welcome. (Units available for past interns to implement activities).

More on the Archive Project

This class will serve the goals of the Bioregion Project by working to create a documented history of humans, plants, and/or animals, local and exotic to the bioregion, from photographs, maps, journals, letters, oral histories, newpapers, cemeteries, tourist guides, home movies, artwork, and/or public records. As this is an ongoing process, the class is offered every quarter.

The grade for the class will be based on the student's completion of a project "contract" formulated with the instructor in the first weeks of the quarter. Students may select from a list of topics or choose their own; each final project project will include a report on the student's activities, a bibliography of sources used and found, and an essay that interprets the significance of the materials discovered.
