Winter Mammalian Ecology (One weekend in February plus one week in March)
This 10 day course focuses on the physiological and behavioral adaptations of large and small mammals in dealing with winter environments. Field techniques associated with ecology and populations processes are used to facilitate the understanding of the adaptations that enhance over winter survivorship of mammals in northern environments.
Interpreting Field Biology (May)
This residential course offers introductions to Adirondack flora and fauna in a regional context as subjects for various interpretive programs and products such as nature walks and trailside presentations, and slide presentations.
