Field Studies
Students will finish this course with a first hand knowledge of the Westward Migration and the Oregon-California-Mormon Pioneer Trail. Participants will drive, walk, and experience portions of the actual trail in Wyoming and Utah. Students will have the opportunity to demonstrate competency in fundamental camping skills, pioneer cooking, travel techniques, Leave No Trace skills, and associated safety skills. This will be accomplished through discussions, demonstrations, and practical activity-based learning. Additionally, students will demonstrate an increased understanding of issues related to supervision of Bureau of Land Management-administered public lands, such as those used in this class, as they relate to recreation and other uses.
