Home to ancient forests, lush meadows, and free-flowing streams, the San Gorgonio Wilderness Area is one of California's premier mountain environments. This well-watered refuge is both biologically diverse and geologically interesting, and includes Southern California's highest peak, as well as the southernmost glaciated terrain on the west coast. This course explores the geology, ecology and biogeography of this unique mountain environment. Participants gain hands-on field experience in identifying forest trees, shrubs and wildflowers, as well as rocks, minerals, and other geologic and geomorphic features in this area.
