Biology includes the basic concepts of life science with an emphasis on how they relate to the ecosystems in the Adirondack Park. Topics include ecology, chemistry of life, cellular structure and function, genetics, and human systems. Field trips, critical thinking activities, laboratory exercises and classroom discussions reinforce the topics covered. The sixmillionacre Adirondack Park serves as nature’s classroom for this course; the woods, lakes,

rivers, and mountains provide unique learning opportunities for students.
