California Ecosystems Field Trip 2014
In the California Ecosystems Field Trip students explore the various ecosystems of Southern California, from the Mojave Desert basins through the coniferous forests perched 10,000 feet above Palm Springs, and the chaparral coastal areas to the rocky and sandy coastal areas around Santa Barbara. There are three main stops: Joshua Tree National Park, the coast near Santa Barbara and San Jacinto peak near Palm Springs. In Joshua Tree National Park and on the California coast there are ecological service projects, an anthropological study, outdoor activities, and a creative project, and we hike to the top of San Jacinto Peak during a two-night backpacking adventure.
