This will be a service learning course with three parts: Students will learn about environmental threats to watersheds (wetlands and coastal areas) with a focus on the lower Connecticut River and adjacent Long Island Sound. They will work with conservation groups in eight towns to collect information about land use, particularly open space and add this to a GIS (Geographic information system) database. They will interview active and inactive members of conservation groups to determine what motivates people in conservation groups to contribute time and money to these organizations.
