Over spring break, seven Lewis & Clark students volunteered with the Grand Canyon Trust to map vegetation in Paria Canyon, one of the world's longest slot canyons, on the border of Grand Canyon National Park. Pictured here are Kirsten Anderson CAS '10; Kate Watters, volunteer program manager at the Grand Canyon Trust; AJ Crocker CAS '11, Jinho Yoo, Academic English Studies; and Ben Brysacz CAS '09.

Meagun Nuss B.A. '08 surveys her creation, See [me], which was on display in the Arnold Gallery in Fields Center for the Visual Arts this spring. Nuss, who majored in environmental studies, created the 23' x 11.5' "wall" out of jute and plaster-cast knobs. The piece was the climax to a series of informal pieces and artistic social experiments that she installed around campus. According to Nuss, the pieces were designed to "invite people to respond to their environment--whether that be the built, natural, or human environment--because response is a function of being in relationship with one's environment."
