The Desert 101 Field Camp Journey is an immersive experience in which we will learn about, through local phenomena, the global causes of how deserts are created around the world and the way the flora and fauna have learned to adapt to extreme conditions. We will also investigate the role of man in the desert ecosystem and develop an understanding of desert economics. The workshop will address questions such as how to exploit the "disadvantage" of desert stress conditions for human benefit and how to deal with water stress conditions. The journey will travel through fascinating landscapes and phenomena and incorporate experiential segments.
