This course analyzes the origins, types and purposes of protected areas as part of integrated resource and environmental management. The emphasis is primarily on North America but will also address parks and reserves at the global level. In addition to the physical environment of protected places, human interaction with the landscape will also be discussed. This course is not a ""tour"" of national parks but a study of the ideas and ""place"" of protected areas. Three lecture hours per week.
