What are your plans for this winter? Studying hard at UWT? How about studying hard at UWT in KENYA!
The UWT Office of International Programs is offering students the opportunity of a lifetime: A 12-credit course, winter quarter 2012, centered around a month-long stay in Kenya.
Environmental Science Professors John Banks and Jim Gawel will lead *15* students on the field studies course, Sustainable Development in East Africa. Highlights include:
- Homestays in communities active in Green Belt Movement's tree restoration and food security projects.
- Safari in the savanna of the famous Masai Mara game reserve, with lectures from wildlife managers on reserve design and challenges.
- Visit the Arabuko-Sokoke forest reserve on the coast north of Mombasa, participating in an ongoing research effort to link declining bird populations with arthropod resources.
- Work with local efforts on the coast to improve urban planning and sustainable water management.
If you’re interested, don’t wait: check out the program and apply now…priority consideration will be given to student applications received by October 31st.
