Field trips are integrated into multiple courses in the weekend program. Introduction to Sustainability, Earth Systems in Organizations, Supply Chain and Green IT Operations, and Ecological Economics all have field trips integrated into the delivery of the course. The accelerated program, because of the compressed class delivery model, integrates field trips through the learning journeys.
In the past, students have visited Pisgah State Park, Ashuelot River Park, and Goose Pond on field trips to discuss complex systems and ecology. In addition, students have toured an organic farm, a planned community, a Corps of Engineers Dam and Keene’s wastewater treatment facility and recycling center as part of earth systems explorations.
Students have also toured multiple businesses and met with the organizational leaders at Cabot Cheese, Monadnock Paper Mills, Propel Energy, New England Wood Pellet, Green Mountain Coffee Roaster, The Farmers Diner, and Bensonwood Homes.
