Dr. Keith Johnson is offering an opportunity for students to join him on a research trip to the Galapagos Islands for a one credit option associated with Biology 115 and Environmental Science 307. The trip is set for January 6-13, 2015. They will first be touring a few mainland sites in Ecuador, including an active volcano and the equatorial line. Following this, they will head out to the Galapagos Islands and spend several days hiking, snorkeling, and moving between the islands on boats. Additionally, students will be able to spend some time at the Darwin Research station, where they work on Land Tortoise conservation. This is an incredible opportunity for students to explore other cultures and learn about conservation efforts.
