Course Description
This on-line course will explore various strategies for open space conservation and protection, along with cultural perspectives on land preservation. In addition, students will be introduced to land stewardship techniques used on such sites to restore or preserve them in accordance with goals set for their use or protection. Emphasis will be placed on developing skills in “reading the landscape” to determine conservation and restoration priorities. Students will present an oral mid-term class presentation, and produce a final paper based on notes from self-guided field trips, class, and readings.
