Tim Parker Field Trips
Under normal circumstances, students in Associate Professor Tim Parker’s Natural History and Ecology lab course participate in weekly, five-hour field trips around eastern Washington. Parker didn’t want his students to miss out on the opportunity to learn in the field now that Whitman College has moved to online learning in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. So Parker is bringing the field to them, adapting his field trips and using video and photographs to make the trips accessible to his 22 students.
