Spend a week exploring the ecology of southeastern Indiana with Biology professors Darrin Rubino (Botanist) and Brian Gall (Zoologist). Carved by the ice ages, with rolling hills, forested bluffs, dramatic ravines and the Ohio River Valley, southeastern Indiana is one of the most biologically diverse and geologically interesting areas of the state. You will assess the environmental quality of our local creeks and streams, investigate climate and disturbance using tree ring analysis, collect 400-million-year-old fossils, learn to identify local animals and plants, and have a great experience doing so in our state-of-the-art laboratories. Using the tools of modern science to study the natural world, the week will culminate in a scholars’ symposium where you’ll have the opportunity to display and present your findings.
