There are elements of secrecy and risk embedded within a winter landscape that seemingly belies the change of seasons and the progression of living things. Yet to the observant, winter is replete with beauty, movement, and life. This course explores the vast intricacies of nature that encapsulate winter, drawing upon the sciences and our individual experience to reveal its pattern. The peculiar adaptations of plants and animals (including humans) to the cold will be understood from the constraints and opportunities afforded by the physical environment. The tutor will emphasize the student's own development as winter interpreters through a sequence of exercises and inquiry, including descriptions of the landscapes that surround us.
