This class is a general introduction to natural science topics and issues such as ecology, environmental conservation and wildlife. Subjects are presented in a variety of formats, including films, lectures, discussion and guest speakers. Each semester themes vary by subject (such as mammals, dinosaurs or coral reefs), or by region (such as the Amazon, Africa or Antarctica).
Last semester, for example, we studied different aspects of sustainable agriculture. This semester class discussions will be focused on two major themes: scientific thought since the Renaissance, and the relationship between life and water on our planet. The class also features monthly fieldtrips, weather permitting.
-Sliding Scale- Cost is $35 per semester. Continuous registration through Berkeley Adult School all semester.
