Description: The goal of the course is to give faculty an overview of basic South Florida ecology and hydrology by providing direct field experiences in this unique ecosystem. Participants will then be able to teach their students to understand their water use and environmental responsibilities as citizens of South Florida. After a session in the Park's Visitor Center with a Park Naturalist, participants will walk paved, boardwalk, or dirt trails and visit an alligator hole, a cypress dome, the critically endangered pine rocklands, a tropical hardwood hammock, a mangrove forest, the coastal prairie, and the sawgrass Everglades plant communities. During the entire workshop, participants will learn how to tune their senses to improve their innate observational skills. Participants will be expected to relate this workshop experience to their discipline and develop ways to incorporate basic concepts of ecology, conservation and environmental economics into their current course objectives. Requirement: Hours will be awarded upon completion of a required assignment.
* Approved CT&D Workshop for Professional Development Credit.
