Earn three professional development (500 level) credits from the University of Alaska-Anchorage while exploring Southeast Alaska's Inside Passage. Expeditions are led by veteran naturalists with many years of field experience. They are accompanied by outstanding professional guides from Above and Beyond Alaska and Spirit Walker Expeditions, two of Southeast Alaska's premier wilderness adventure companies.
These professional-level courses devote five days to field study of the habits of some of the region's most iconic animals as a means to understanding the broader ecology of the area. Opportunities abound to closely observe the behavior and habitat of Alaska's world-renowned animals, deepening the understanding how humans interact with other species and what it takes to keep those relationships healthy. Exploring the American wilderness ideal is an integral part of each course.
In addition to natural history, you will learn the kayaking, hiking and camping skills needed to safely and comfortably travel in wild country. We provide group gear and all meals, and can advise you on personal items you may wish to bring along. Each expedition is limited to 10 participants.
