Class Field Trip

I find the Mill Creek excursion or the prospect of walking along a river the most appealing. In my 2nd Web Paper, I proposed picking up the litter along Rhoads Pond, and Prof Dalke suggested possibly fitting that activity into our walk along Mill Creek, if that is what we end up choosing. As for the walk along a river, I think that would be a useful trip; we could treat it like a Thoreauvian Walk and amble and let things happen along the way. Part of the class might be structured, maybe we could have some activities, but I think kind of letting the experience happen along the way might have its merits too.
