Levels one and two join together this block to investigate some impacts of humans on the Avon Otakaro River. We will consider whether these impacts are sustainable or not.

At level one students will undertake a biological investigation from hypothesis to conclusion. At level two our focus is the human impacts on the biophysical environment of the river.

You will be expected to work as a group to gather information in the field. However, your final reports will be individually written. The course will involve field work in the river and, yes, it will be cold and wet at this time of year.
