A Very High Quality of Instruction
Our workshops offer a unique opportunity to explore focused topics in natural history under the guidance of noted authorities. Hands-on field and laboratory investigations teach ecology, evolution, use of taxonomic keys, and techniques. The workshops present college-level instruction and are designed to accommodate participants with a broad range of experience. The only prerequisite for any of the workshops is a keen interest in the topic. Enrollment in each session is limited to 20, providing an informal atmosphere and individualized instruction.
