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 and auditors welcome. (Units available
for past interns to implement activities).
