Evergreen's proximity to diverse natural landscapes provides a unique opportunity to study invertebrate organisms in terrestrial and aquatic environments.  In this program, students will examine the taxonomy, morphology, and ecology of insects and marine invertebrates to enhance their understanding of biodiversity among animals.   

Each class session includes outdoor fieldwork in various ecosystems near the Evergreen campus.  We will keep illustrated field notebooks, emphasizing the importance of careful observation of morphology and behavior as learning and identification tools.  In the lab, students will practice microscopy techniques and develop skills in museum specimen curation by preserving, labeling, and presenting specimens in displays and museum drawers.  Specimens collected during the program will be used to supplement the college's teaching collection. 

There will be a mandatory 6-day field trip to the Olympic Peninsula August 18-23.
