Join Dr. Mark Grismer, Professor of Environmental Science, UC Davis and Global Student Embassy in Nicaragua this summer, between June 29-July 12, for an intensive field course. Students will develop and initiate field restoration projects that examine practical issues related to the topics of water and soil conservation and management. The group will engage in lectures, discussions, problem solving activities, and complete daily homework assignments as they learn quantitative design methods, field measurements, erosion control, and soils rehabilitation implementation. Included in the program are excursions to explore the historic city of Leon, climb a volcano, and visit the beautiful beaches of the Pacific Coast.
