SEFS Students Win Academic Competition Against University of British Columbia

SEFS undergrad Aoife Fae, who was part of the winning team with fellow students Paul Albertine and Timothy Seaman.

Twenty-four hours is all the students were given to assess the forest and develop a stewardship plan for a 35-acre, 100-plus-year-old forest track on King County Parks land. That was the task this past weekend at the 10th Annual International Silviculture Challenge, which pitted six students from the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences (SEFS)—Paul Albertine, Aoife Fae, Anthony Martinez, Timothy Seaman, Chris Scelsa and Brendan Whyte—against six students from the University of British Columbia (UBC)—Devon Campbell, Alexia Constantanou, Shawna Girard, Flavie Pelletier, Codie Sundie and Cole Troughton.

Wild Rockies Field Institute course announcement

Greetings from the Wild Rockies Field Institute:

Hopefully the winter quarter is treating you well so far!  If you’re familiar with WRFI, terrific.  If you need a refresher or more background:

The Wild Rockies Field Institute is an off-campus study opportunity; WRFI offers academic field-based courses through the University of Montana.  Our courses take place in the “Wild Rockies” of North America and combine rigorous academic inquiry with cultural immersion and extended backcountry expeditions.  Students join us from colleges and universities across North America and from a wide variety of majors; we currently offer courses in Environmental Studies, Natural Resources & Science Management, Native American Studies, Geography, Science, and Philosophy.  WRFI’s small group size and interdisciplinary curriculum offer students an exceptional opportunity to complement their coursework on campus with experiential education in the field.


Here are a few exciting opportunities for that WRFI has coming down the pipe for 2017!

 

The first opportunity is time sensitive:

Due to an injury, one of the students enrolled on our upcoming spring course in the Colorado Plateau has had to withdraw.  The dates for this course coincides with most quarter-system schedules and will run from March 20-May 20 this year.  Recognizing the short turn-around time, we would still love to offer this vacancy up to a student interested in spending their spring quarter in the American Southwest on an incredible field course!  I have pasted an announcement below to share with your students who may be interested in this exciting (albeit last minute!) opportunity.  This course is also offered again in the fall (September 18- November 18, 2017) in case it catches a student’s eye, but isn’t possible for the spring.


Do you need a change next quarter?  Think sunshine and red-rock canyons!

The Wild Rockies Field Institute offers field-based, academic courses to undergraduate students, accredited through the University of Montana and transferable to other universities and colleges. 

WRFI’s spring term course, “Colorado Plateau: Desert Canyons and Cultures” will take you backpacking and canoeing through the American Southwest while you explore ancient and contemporary indigenous cultures, hone your naturalist skills, and learn about current land management strategies and challenges.  Learn more on our website: http://www.wrfi.net/courses/colorado-plateau.html.

DATES: March 20 – May 20, 2017 |  Southern Utah & Northern Arizona  | 22.5 credits in 9 weeks  | Scholarships Available!

APPLY HERE: http://www.wrfi.net/enroll/index.html


EARN CREDIT LIVING IN YOUR TENT NEXT QUARTER.  SERIOUSLY!

Please Contact Bethany Swanson (WRFI Outreach Manager) with questions at bethany@wrfi.net or 406-549-4336.

This second opportunity is brand new and THRILLING for WRFI (and we think for students too!):

TREK Bikes is sponsoring WRFI’s 2017 “Cycle the Rockies” course!  With TREK’s help, WRFI will now be able to offer students the option to rent a touring bike and associated bike touring equipment at a very low cost.  In addition, TREK plans to send two photojournalists out to Montana to ride with the course for a stint to document the experience.  It’s a VERY exciting year to be involved with the cycling course!  Students do not need any prior bike touring experience to join the course.  Can you please share the following course announcement with folks who may find this opportunity exciting?


Are you interested in studying climate change?  Bike tour across Montana this summer learning about climate change and earning credit along the way!

The Wild Rockies Field Institute offers field-based, academic courses to undergraduate students, accredited through the University of Montana and transferable to other universities and colleges. 

WRFI’s cycling course, “Cycle the Rockies: Energy & Climate Change in Montana”, takes students on a bike tour across Montana to learn where our energy comes from and how climate change is effecting Montana’s people and landscapes.

WRFI is thrilled to partner with TREK Bikes this year!  With TREK’s sponsorship, WRFI will have a number of bikes available as rentals for students at a low cost!  NO BIKE TOURING EXPERIENCE NEEDED.

Learn more on our website: http://www.wrfi.net/courses/cyclemontana.html

DATES: June 15- July 12, 2017 |  Montana  | 9 credits in 3 weeks  | Scholarships Available!

APPLY HERE: http://www.wrfi.net/enroll/index.html                                                                                                

EARN CREDIT LIVING IN YOUR TENT NEXT QUARTER.  SERIOUSLY!
