“Footprints on the James” class

June 10, 2015

Beginning on May 18, the much-anticipated return of this fascinating class began. Starting with preparations in town at the VCU Outing Rental Center, the class geared up for a four week journey that will cover the length of the James River. From the headwaters near Irongate all the way to Jamestown, the class is traveling in canoes and kayaks and camping along the way, including a stop at the VCU Rice Rivers Center. The aim of the class is to explore the past and present of the river from a historical and biological standpoint, paying particular attention to the influences these areas have on each other. The class is a collaboration between the Department of Biology and the Center for Environmental Studies.
