This class introduces principles of marine biology focusing on the marine life and marine habitats of the Pacific Northwest coast. We will study the environment, taxonomy, adaptations, and ecology of marine organisms as well as the major oceanographic features of the northwest coast. Students living in Olympia or near marine environments will complete surveys of various habitats and study resident organisms. Whether remote or in-person, this offering will include lectures and workshops. 

If remote, learning will include recorded lectures and video-conferencing workshop sessions and seminars. The class will emphasize participation in synchronous (live) sessions; however, if students find themselves unable to participate, they can work with faculty to pursue alternate options to earn related credit.
