Summer Trip to American Southwest

Hello fellow chapter members. I wanted to do a little advertising for a summer trip I am running. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Join SUNY-Orange’s Global Initiative: Sustaining the Earth in a visit to the Four Corners area of the American Southwest during Summer Session I. Despite this region’s uncompromising natural environment, it has been the home to numerous Native American groups for millennia as well as a rapidly expanding contemporary population. Our trip will explore both the natural and cultural landscape to examine the nuanced relationships between people and environment
