LEAF School Canoe Journey 2018 Application
The Learn and Serve Environmental Anthropology Field (LEAF) School at Edmonds Community College is hosting a field school in Summer 2018. The LEAF School gives students an opportunity to participate in hands-on field work with local canoe families on the Paddle to Puyallup while earning college credit in a combination of courses in Human Ecology, Bioanthropology and/or Coast Salish Art. Activities along the journey will include ethnobotany, wildlife tracking, museum visits, gift making, language instruction, singing, dancing, camp logistics, driving, traditional food preparation, riding in support boats, observing and participating in protocol, pulling in tribal canoes (when invited), and support of potlatch activities.

Students whose applications are approved will enroll for fifteen credits during summer quarter. All students will earn at least five credits in the Human Ecology sequence (Anth 201, 202, and 203) and may enroll in five credits each of Bioanthropology (Anth 215) or Coast Salish Art (Art 129). These courses provide the potential of satisfying humanities, social science, natural science lab, and/or cultural diversity distribution requirements.
