In this laboratory activity students will gain an understanding of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and be able to apply it to a (perhaps hypothetical) community project. In the process, they will learn the methods of investigating an environmental history and integrate this pursuit with sciences of ecology and geology along with environmental land use policy. While engaged in this activity students will come to understand and apply the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for a class project, understand and execute geological and geographical analysis for the study area, understand the land use policy issues confronting the project, and make recommendations.
