From previous students....
"What a passionate team of mentors to work with and learn from! ES 441 meant muddy rubber boots and engaged conversations—by the wood stove, on afternoon transects, or at the cozy GCA office—and sprouted deep investment in learning. I grew so much."
--Navi Smith, 2013
"ES 441 was the most thought-provoking, engaging, and fun course I took at UVic. It is an experience that lets you work with an inspiring prof and amazing peers, meet talented and knowledgeable people at the Galiano Conservancy, learn hands-on, and be outside in the natural world that you hope to conserve, restore, and re-think."
--Angela Ratzburg, 2014
"Taking ER411 on Galiano Island was one of the richest and most inspiring learning experiences of my university career. This course constitutes a real example of a collaborative effort embodying the principles of inclusivity and participation."
--Vincent Hamann, 2013
"ES 441 is an amazing course; my favourite taken so far as it champions learning by doing! A wonderful, immersive experience that will connect you with many different people who are active in conservation and restoration science."
--Torrey Archer, 2014
