Coral Reef Ecology:

Coral Reef Ecology introduces students to the ecological systems and principles of the coral reef environments of the new-world tropics as a primary example.  Students conduct independent projects in the field and report on their results in a variety of formats.  We emphasize identification of tropical biota, ecological interactions within tropical communities, and human impacts on tropical ecosystems.  We will also discuss the natural and cultural history of Belize, where our field sites are located.

The Fourteenth Colony is devoted to the exploration of the Spanish colonial missions of California’s storied Monterey Bay. Two six-day residential workshops spanning the weeks of July 7 through 13, and July 13 through 19, 2013, will address the tumultuous and often controversial era of The Fourteenth Colony: California Indians, Missions, Presidios, and Colonists on the Hispanic Frontier, 1769-1848. This program will consist of historic landmarks tours and lectures, art history and indigenous food and culture orientations, discussion forums, and traditional craft and technology demonstrations presented by community scholars, museum curators, musicians, and leading scholars of California and Southwest Spanish colonial mission studies.
