Biodiversity Stewardship

This course builds on the principles of biodiversity science across the many components of stewardship. Participants will each identify a study area (local site or area, a county, or larger region) that provides the context for investigating, documenting, analyzing and promoting biodiversity.   Accordingly, students’ projects and course products are highly variable and reflect a wide variety of professional, academic and personal interests.  Skills developed in this course can be immediately applied to real-world needs, and some participants may design their projects and products to address an existing need.
