Today’s students need to understand how the complex and dynamic human and natural systems interact in order to make smart decisions. The Geo-Inquiry Process relies on using a geographic perspective, offering a unique lens to analyze space, place, and the interconnections between both the human and natural world. Using both a geographic perspective and the Geo-Inquiry Process students begin to connect complex components, see patterns, and make connections that help them become civically engaged with their communities.

Due to the nature of this outdoor course, we will be walking and hiking over uneven, often rocky/sandy, and wet terrain in unpredictable weather. Participants should be comfortable hiking at least 1 mile in a single day. While we do our best to accommodate people of all abilities, attendees will need to be comfortable with these accomodations.
