Even if it didn’t involve a travel component to The Everglades, the name of this Learning Community alone is enough to grab your attention: “Swamp Walks and Roadside Shrines – The Religion and Science of Place.” It combined an environmental studies course and one on religious studies and seven times in the past 10 years students in the LC traveled to and camped in the largest subtropical wetland ecosystem on the continent. There they conducted environmental science analyses and examined the connection between spirituality and nature.
