Field based units

The unique landscapes from arid central Australia to the tropical savannas in the north, are explored through an intensive 11-day field school that begins in Alice Springs and finishes in Darwin. Land management issues including fire, weeds, and water resources are considered within the context of the landscape processes and ecology of each region.

Offered for the first time in late-2009, this exciting unit involves a two-week field trip to eastern Indonesia, to investigate food and water resources in a village in West Timor.Environmental Science students >

The Centre for Inquiry Ontario office is on the main floor of an old row house in downtown Toronto, but has the look of a spacious church basement. It has a piano, folding chairs in neat rows, and shelves of books, many with God in the title.
