Field Studies in Ecuador

in the Galapagos Isles, Andes Mountains, North Coast

and Tropical Rainforest

June 28 – July 21, 2004  


(6 Credits in Geography, Earth Science, History or African American Studies)   


OBJECTIVES  This program will provide a cross cultural and scientific experience as participants, over a three week period of time, traverse and explore unique ecological zones along the equator. The course combines the study of geography, earth science, history and African American studies (we visit Afro-Ecuadorian communities). Participants will study the volcanic landscape forming processes of the region and observe the impacts of these processeson topography, hydrology, soils, various forms of agriculture and settlement patterns. The geography of human environment interactions are examined in the high Andes Mountains, north coast, tropical rainforest of the Ecuadorian Amazon, and on the Galapagos Isles located 600 miles off the coast of South America.


ITINERARY  We depart from and return to Chicago O’Hare Airport. The point of arrival in Ecuador is Quito, a city located 9,200 feet above sea level with warm dry spring like day-time temperatures and cool temperatures in the evening. We explore four distinct geographic regions, the first two in our private bus. First, volcanoes, villages and markets of the Andes Mountains; second, the north coast; third, the Ecuadorian Amazon, beginning with a flight from Quito to the rainforest, travelling two hours by boat to the lodge; and fourth, the course climax, a five day excursion among the Galapagos Isles (includes airfare to isles and first class boat). A sample of activities:


-  Stay at eco-tourism lodge                          -  Visit the north coast and walk along the beach

-  Hike trails through the rainforest                -  Tropical rainforest ecology, farming, coffee, chocolate

-  Ride in boat inside volcano caldera           -  Cross Continental Divide of the Andes Mountains

-  Visit volcanoes and ride mule                    -  Visit traditional cultures and outdoor markets

-  Learn global positioning system (GPS)     -  See survey monuments marking the equator

-  Mt. Cotopaxi National Park                         -  Beautiful turquoise-colored Lake Quilotoa

-  Climb a volcano (optional)                         -  Time to shop and time to learn map-reading skills

-  Cruise among the Galapagos Isles                       -  Snorkel and swim among the fish and seals

-  Walk trails among blue-footed birds          -  Study the volcanic origins of Galapagos Isles


FACULTY  Dr. Betty Smithjoined the Department of Geology and Geography at Eastern Illinois University in 1995 after receiving her Ph.D. in Geography. She teaches Cultural Geography, Land Use Planning, Geography & Culture of Latin America, Urban Geography, and Geographic Information Systems (GIS). She has conducted field work in Ecuador, Bolivia and Argentina and is fluent in Spanish. She has published in scholarly journals and books. She specializes in human environmental interactions and has spent over a year in Ecuador on ten research and study abroad trips over the past 14 years. Dr. Smith collaborates in research and scholarly writing with Ecuadorian geographers and is President of the Midwest Association for Latin American Studies. Dr. Smith believes there is no better way to acquire knowledge than through the experiential learning of a field course.
