(option 1) Environmental Crisis?

 Course Description: 
This sequence is ideal for students interested in science, but do not necessarily want the formal introductory courses in biology and chemistry.  In the Fall, we will focus on a variety of environmental concerns that have come to light in the last 40-some years.  The topics covered will promote the pertinence of the environmental issues at hand, the future needs of our environmental practices and policies, and the global ramifications of environmental phenomena.  Also examined in this course will be the elements of toxicology, ecology, and various environmentally oriented cycles, natural mechanisms and phenomena, energy, and the balance between population growth and sustainable resources.   The Spring course is an ecological approach to the study of life with emphasis on the outdoor world, and the people and places in it. This course includes a laboratory period.Most labs will be outside and will focus on the ecology and identification of Ohio wildlife. There will also be a weekend field trip to Stone Lab on Gibraltar Island
