Students from St. Thomas University gain course credits, in-the-field experience by visiting New Brunswick ecosystems

“Over two days in October, eight Ecological Literacy students were given the unique opportunity to mobilize their knowledge by visiting five New Brunswick ecosystems with their professor. While identifying and learning to classify the characteristics of each of the ecosystems, the students also engaged with woodlot managers and other professionals working towards a sustainable forestry sector in New Brunswick. Through this experience, they gained firsthand insight into a day in the life of those working in the environmental management sector. This for-credit, off-campus-activity offered students the opportunity to take what they’ve learned in the classroom and see how it is applied in a real-world setting.”
