Skill-based lectures tailored to project choices that provide tools students need to successfully complete project deliverables. Previous guest speakers include visitors from The Nature Conservancy, Regional Plan Association, Sustainable CT, FEMA, EPA, and Newburgh Community Land Bank.

A part of the course is a one-week field trip the second week of spring break to Barcelona, Spain. The trip is limited to 12 students and priority is given to F&ES students.  A limited number of additional spots are available in the Clinic for students who are unable to attend the trip.  Due to high demand, the course requires you to complete a short application.  Students are selected during the fall term.  Students are expected to cover 20% of the field trip cost (approximately $400).  Please complete this application in its entirety by November 1, 2018.  Application is available at:
