We are proud to provide access to the capstone projects Environmental Science & Management students at Humboldt State University.

Understanding environmental challenges and applying practical scientific solutions are at the heart of this major. This bachelor’s of science degree program focuses on restoring ecosystems, addressing energy and climate issues, and developing the skills to understand and manage the ever-changing relationship between humans and the natural world.

Note to those submitting projects: Alternative text and color accessibility instructions are provided in this Canvas Course in the Tables and Figures modules. Here's a video from that course on how to make figures and images accessible to colorblind or sight-impaired patrons. Here's also some web pages on how to insert alternative text for tables, insert alternative text for figures, and make colorblind accessible figures in Word.
