Walking Park Tours

Wear comfortable shoes as we will do a walking tour through Harmon, Yanney, and Cottonmill Parks, learning about their histories as well as new features of the parks. When and how was the rock garden constructed? How tall is the Gottschalk Tower? What kind of fish are in the lake at Cottonmill? What plants are going in the new Gardens at Yanney Park? Tours will be led by various Park and Recreation Department staff.

RIP: Death and Cemetery Culture

Death plays a starring role in human society. In this class, we examine cultural practices regarding cemeteries and death in the United States and around the world. Among other topics, we will discuss issues of cemetery organization, structure and management, grave marker design, burial rituals and practices, funeral options, and dealing with death and grieving. Students for this class should be sufficiently mobile to participate in field trips to local cemeteries and should also be prepared to take photographs that they can send to faculty and perhaps other students.
