Skills and Career Applications

Exposes students to environmental problems in the Western United States.

Registration Advice

This class can be very difficult to get into because of its popularity. There is room for 20 students, and they make 10 spots available for first years and 10 for second years. Many students actually camp out at the Nicholas School the night before pin numbers for the class are issued so they can hold their place in line. I recommend camping out if you are interested in going because it will hopefully secure you a spot, and it's also pretty fun!

Student Opinions

This is a very cool class, especially if you've never been to the northwest. You can take the class twice for credit because they rotate the destination every year. One year the class will east of the cascades, into Eastern Washington, Idaho, and Montant, and the next year the class goes west of the cascades into Washington and Oregon. The class is exposed to timber management, land conservation, stream restoration and dam removal, fish issues, and much much more. The schedule for the week is jam packed full of activities, but there is always time for fun and R & R! For many students in the MEM program, the first semester is spent behind a computer. The Wester Field Trip offers students a chance to escape the monotony and get out and see the beautiful landscapes that we are working so hard to conserve!
