GEOG 301: Bay Area Environments Fall 2016 Self-Guided Field Trip Due by 11:59pm, December 9th Introduction If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a field trip is worth a million words. The Bay Area is a unique and diverse place. A mixture of natural wonder and large urban centers. We?ve discussed many aspects of the Bay Area, including water, garbage, transportation, and agriculture. Visiting field locations really helps to understand our Bay Area environments. Activity Summary Each student will take a minimum of one (more than one is encouraged) selfguided field trip. Plan on spending at least three hours out in the field. Appropriate background research is required so that you will understand what you see and are prepared to think critically about it once in the field. A list of suitable sites are detailed below. These locations provide a meaningful window into the nature, patterns, &/or processes of the Bay Area. The purpose of the field trip is to look for patterns and problems we have discussed in class out in the ?real world.? You are free to choose a different field site, but must be approved of by myself. Part I: Proposal Before you visit a field site do background research about where you?ll visit so once you?re at the location, you can ask poignant questions, critically think about the processes taking place, and be able to enjoy your field trip on a deeper level.
