Activities for Week 4: Reflecting on the field trip and the way forward

Tuesday, April 22

Today, we will be doing a post-mortem on our field trip. The first thing will be a slide show that Steven and Elise will choose from pictures that you mail to them by 5 p.m. on Monday, the 21st. If you take pictures on the trip, please send them up to 20 pictures, in format small enough not to overflow their email inboxes.

The next thing will be my summary of the posts that you make by midnight on the 21st regarding the field trip. I will extract important points made in answer to the questions we prepared beforehand and asked on the trip, and we will have a general discussion about these points.

The third thing will be a discussion of the essay assignments that are due on Monday, April 28, since you will be in the middle of writing your essays.

Thursday, April 24

Today we are fortunate to have Professor Rick Gustafson of the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences, who will give us a presentation on The Advanced Hardwood Biofuels Project Northwest," which is producing biofuels from hardwoods (non-coniferous trees) in Washington, Oregon, Northern California, and Northern Idaho. In preparation, please look at their website, and then by 7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 23, please post two questions for Professor Gustafson.
