We will be in Australia for four weeks, visiting the cities of Sydney, Canberra, Brisbane, Cairns, and Alice Springs. Included in this course are: a camping trip to Moreton Island; a cruise on the Great Barrier Reef that will include snorkeling opportunities; and a second camping trip in Central Australia. Course time will be devoted to field trips to zoos, museums, wilderness areas, and other points of interest; occasional lectures at appropriate sites; and periodic group meetings to discuss students experiences. Students will keep a journal of their trip, and there will be periodic reading quizzes as the course progresses. At the course's conclusion, students will prepare a paper on a topic of their choosing.
