BRN Core Requirement (Part 2 of 2)

Vertebrate Zoology I is a prerequisite. Vertebrate Zoology I and II must both be completed to fulfill the core requirement


The Southern Appalachian Mountain region is quite diverse in the many different species of vertebrate animals that make their home here. In this series of classes, students will learn the basic identification and natural history of many of our mountain wildlife species. Each week we will cover a different group of vertebrate animals--Zoology II will focus on birds and mammals--through the use of slide presentations and worksheets.

*Instructions for joining via Zoom will be sent by email prior to the first class. A recording of each session will be made available to registered participants for a limited period for review and to provide access to those with scheduling conflicts.
