Co-Director of field trip to Green Falls Mountain, Colorado. The field trip consisted of leading fifteen students in an exploration of the theme of “path” through the following disciplines: biology, outdoor education, mapping, writing, gender studies, cultural studies, race relations, and communications. Students were required to make their own trail, map it, name it, describe its fauna and flora and discuss how this trail mirrored their personality and life experiences. The students gave oral presentations to different classrooms at the university.
