Pushing boundaries

Today we went bird watching, completed the low ropes course, rock climbed, listened to a presentation on amber fossilization, and watched The Chronicle at the Sewanee movie theater.
This morning, led by Doctor Haskell, we learned that bird and tree identification is not determined by sight alone, and that sound is an important part of the environmental makeup, and then later learned through Dr. Knoll that this environmental complex is not temporary; the actions and interactions in this complex can then be preserved through time through different ways of fossilization, one of them being through amber.

Outside of the classroom, we pushed boundaries through group activities that required trust and teamwork and continued pushing these boundaries individually through rock climbing.
