Footprints 2016

It’s that time of year again! We’re now accepting applications for the 2016 Footprints on the James class. The class this year will begin on May 23rd and conclude on the 10th of June. Some readings and pre-trip meeting will be expected from participants 2-3 weeks prior to beginning the class.

To apply, please send a 1-2 page personal statement and a CV to Daniel Carr at Please let us know why you think that this experience would benefit you and what you would gain from a month on the river. Applications will be accepted until at least April 1, 2015, but we may consider later applicants on a case-by-case basis. While the course is geared towards Biology and Environmental Studies majors, students of all disciplines are encouraged to apply. While some experience in the outdoors can be helpful, it is neither necessary nor expected. Please include Footprints 2016 in the title.

If you’re interested, or you or someone you know would like to know more about this unique experience, please stop by and speak to Daniel Carr, LFSC 234, or Edward Crawford, LFSC 125, in the Biology Department at 1000 W. Cary St. Please take a look at for more information on the previous years.

This year’s class will be an exciting collaboration between the VCU Departments of Biology, the Outdoor Adventure Program, the Center for Environmental Studies, the VCU Rice Rivers Center and faculty from a wide variety of academic and research backgrounds. See you on the river,
