Winter field camp course 2017 at Providence Point was a great experience!

Our students worked hard – starting work at 9am and submitting in their daily assignment reports at 11pm – had fun, and learned much about winter water, weather, and climate.  Dr. Chris Burn and field assistant, Alice Wilson, were always on the scene to answer questions, guide students, and foster a curiosity and love of research.

Don’t worry, that had fun too!
