HOME SCHOOL HIGH SCHOOL ECOLOGY COURSE
The deadline is approaching to register for the new fall High School Field Ecology course at the RPSEC! This fall-semester course is the equivalent of a 1/2-credit highschool lab science course, and will focus on Ecology of Central and CoastalSouth Carolina. The deadline for payment is 8/5/13 and classes will begin 8/21/13. There will also be a 1/2-credit spring semester course that will focus on the Ecology of the Piedmont & Southern Appalachians.

Each semester will consist of over 90 hours of exciting hands-on instruction at the Ruth Patrick Science Education Center (RPSEC) and inspiring outdoor field experiences. The fall and spring sessions may be taken independently or together.
Classes will begin at the RPSEC; many will be held from 1-5 pm on Mondays, but day trips and a few overnight trips will be required. The $800 Fall Semester Field Ecology fee includes course costs, travel, overnight accommodations and food during overnight stays. Dr. Gary J.
