NCSR: Environmental Science III
Environment Science is a series of three courses developed by Chemeketa Community College that addresses environmental topics. Each is a 4-credit course that includes a lab and lecture. The courses are targeted towards students in natural resource areas (e.g. Forestry, Fish and Wildlife, Agriculture). This series of courses was added as a requirement for students in the Forest Resources Technology Program at Chemeketa and are intended to introduce students to basic ecological concepts and environmental issues related to natural resource management.
Environmental Science III “examines environmental problems and issues related to energy and environmental contamination such as air pollution, water pollution and solid waste management. The relationships between environmental problems and other aspects of society such as economics and public policy are also explored. Sustainability is a dominant theme.”
