At Northwest Community College, we do class a little differently.
Our students just finished an amazing field study that brought them to Stewart and Telegraph Creek, in Northern British Columbia where they investigated the geology, and observed some of the most spectacular glacial and alpine landscapes on Earth.
While experiencing a local First Nation culture and developing an appreciation for a wide variety of geomorphological processes and landscapes, NWCC students gained a strong foundation in geoscience and anthropology.
Time was spent exploring the volcanic area of Mt. Edziza, and the lava deposits along the valley of the Stikine River to Telegraph Creek.
While at Telegraph Creek, students were guided by Tahltan people on their amazing and breathtaking territory, to learn about the Tahltan culture, history, and salmon fishing villages.
As part of their field studies students were encouraged to draw upon the information and experiences they acquire in both the geomorphology and anthropology courses to develop and articulate more informed opinions on culture, resource exploration and environmental stewardship.
