We don't go on field trips in Leaders in Environmental Activism, 
but we do bring speakers in.  Local environmental activist and Ohio 
Division of Natural Resources botanist Marilyn Ortt (right) is seen 
here discussing an endangered mussel species with mussel expert 
Dr. Tom Watters (third from right).  Biology Faculty member 
Dr. Steve Spilatro is searching for mussels in the background.  
The Muskingum River (pictured) is still one of the greatest sites 
of mussel diversity in the world.  Marietta College is located at 
the junction of the Ohio and Muskingum Rivers.
This course is offered as an elective in the McDonough Leadership Program 
and in the Environmental Science major and the Environmental Science minor.  
It is offered every other year.
