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.
Available for College Credit
Students may receive Undergraduate or Graduate credit for any of our workshops by enrolling in UWM, Biological Sciences, 562, Topics in Field Biology. The two day workshops carry one credit and the week-long workshops carry two credits. There is an additional tuition fee to receive credit. Workshop fees are discounted for students taking the course for credit and paying the tuition fee.
