Spend J-Term 2016 in the Cascade Mountains! Study Environmental Policy at Holden Village, an ecumenical retreat center near Chelan, WA. With over 250 inches of snow each winter, Holden is a unique and splendid place to think about environmental issues. The history and current operations of the village play an important role in the course. Holden was the largest producing copper mine in the U.S. from the mid 1930s to the mid 1950s and now is starting on a $100 million clean-up of the mine site. This course will examine and evaluate current and proposed policies for addressing environmental issues in the Pacific Northwest. Issues to be examined include wilderness, endangered species, mining, hydroelectric dams, water rights, public lands management, logging, and outdoor recreation. These issues will be used as case studies to understand the nature of the political process in the United States as well as to gain insight on the particular challenges in human-nature relations within the intermountain west.
