A hands-on Chesapeake Bay course at NDMU introduces students to the study of Bay health and how it directly impacts the plants and animals in the surrounding areas. This firsthand field research is an essential and key feature of many biology courses here at Notre Dame. Take the journey with our students, learn more about the course, and experience the scenes from their recent trip to Oregon Ridge Park.
“This course is an amazing opportunity for students to learn about the ecosystems and environment of a local treasure, the Chesapeake Bay. Meanwhile, they can put into action a variety of skills, such as water testing and fieldwork observation of the organisms that live in the bay,” said Dr. Rebecca Zordan, chair of the Department of Biology. “Every class in the department strives to link the coursework to real-world applications, and the Chesapeake Bay course is no exception.”
