July 23 - 27 & July 30 - Aug 3
9 AM to 3:30 PM
For students who have completed their sophomore year in high school.
During this two-week course, students will assess the quality of our local environment to determine the extent and sources of pollution. Through lecture, laboratory activities, and hands-on experience students will review the biological, chemical, hydrological, and ecological aspects of ecosystems, and will explore the complexity of environmental problems.
Topics of study include the hydrologic cycle, water pollution, air quality, soil pollution, increasing population, energy consumption, and worldwide solid waste disposal.
Completion earns students three undergraduate credits which work towards Lackawanna College’s Environmental Science Degree and can be transferable. Class will be held at LCEEC and will use the 211-acre property as a living-laboratory.
Camp is $300 per student. Registration is required, and space is limited. For more information or to register, contact Lackawanna College Environmental Education Center at (570) 842-1506.
