We are unveiling our new NAECC blog and what better way to start off then to feature a summer trip!! A group of Purdue students, faculty, staff and alumni will depart this weekend on a two-week adventure to Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana where we will examine environmental issues that are impacting tribal communities. Last year, we started this geology field course experience and we focused on the Colorado Plateau and this year, we’re visiting Native communities in the Mississippi Delta. During our two week trip, we’ll update our blog and post pictures on the many communities we’ll visit, the many people we meet and undoubtedly the many “shenanigan” we’ll encounter on this journey. I hope you’ll enjoy our adventure and learn something along the way.
