Textbook Sources

This course has field trips to wetlands. We will be walking in water and mud. Rubber boots would be a great addition to your field gear if you do not already have a pair. Hip boots would be the best. There are some low-cost hip boot sources around town; try Big 5 Sporting Goods. ( This kind goes inside of your shoes.) Get the right size.
