An Out West Odyssey

Southern Arkansas University, Magnolia, Arkansas, and the South Central Service Cooperative, Camden, Arkansas, have teamed together once again to offer area teachers exciting and challenging opportunities to study and explore America's Pacific Northwest.

The participants, public school instructors and media personnel from several counties in Arkansas, will research various topics of interest related to the region in the course entitled Natural History of the Pacific Northwest.   Following the natural history course, a field study course is being offered for the summer of 2001 entitled Ecology of the Pacific Northwest, in which participants will spend 12 days exploring the region.

The purpose of both courses is to allow teachers opportunities to study and develop a material and knowledge package to take back to the classroom that will benefit public school students.  A comprehensive multi-media product is a requirement for each participant, and an interactive web site is available for public school students to use as a resource for research.

The Natural History course began in January and will conclude in May.  The Ecology course will begin in June and end with a post-trip meeting in September.
