Course Description: 

Cultural Ecology in the Urban Forest at Tryon Creek

This course is designed to inspire and question the ways we educate both ourselves and our next seven generations as global stewards. Through remote discussions and exercises, readings and media, nature journaling, and personal reflection, students will gain a deeper appreciation of the authentic cultural ecology of the area. For Summer Term 2021, the course will be offered mainly in a remote format on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9-11am, with the option for occasional face-to-face engagement at Tryon Creek. Students will have the opportunity to collaboratively apply their learning to a community outreach project that helps the extended Tryon Creek community in building unique and lasting relationships with the natural world. Projects will be mainly remote with the option for face-to-face engagement related to the projects.
