Biology offers two travel study opportunities which are offered in alternating years. The Salt Spring Island program takes advantage of the University’s property, Crow’s Nest Ecological Research Area, located in the Southern Gulf Islands of British Columbia. The property harbours several endangered Garry Oak meadows providing unique opportunities for ecological research. Students who travel to Salt Spring Island take courses in Marine Biology and Plant Ecology. Studies on Salt Spring Island are next offered in May 2009. The Hawaii program, next offered in May 2010, includes courses in Coral Reef Ecology and Tropical Botany.
