Additional Details:

Learn about the wealth of abundant life and complexity of the many ecosystems that have existed through time in proximity to the campus; the natural processes, people, and cultural relationships that have created, contributed to, and maintained this abundance; as well as the profound impacts to the original people and lands of the campus associated with the settlement and engineering of the City of Seattle. Consider what it means to bring back this wealth while developing a richer understanding for the region through campus walking tours and local field trips. Learn from stories, elders, the Lushootseed language, and an introduction to the museums, archives, plant, and horticultural resources on campus.
