A brief description of the sustainability-focused immersive program(s) offered by the institution:

FOREST ECOSYSTEMS FIELD COURSE: The course is an intensive course in forest ecology and you will be required to work long hours in the field and under different conditions (wet, dry, clean, dirty, etc). This course deals with the practical aspects of studying forest ecosystems. Students will learn techniques of data collection, analysis and interpretation in the study of forest ecosystems. Students are taught how to develop forest site descriptions, determine site quality, predict forest productivity, classify forest ecosystems and study the influence of environmental factors (abiotic and biotic) and silviculture treatments on forest growth. Students will participate in an environmental impact’s assessment of forestry activities on forest ecosystems. Relationships between multiple resource use and forest ecosystems will also be investigated. Differences between boreal/deciduous and urban forest systems will also be investigated.
