University Classes

University-level Education

Sedgwick is an idyllic and instructive site for university-level class visits. University level classes come from near and far to enable students to participate in hands-on field studies in geomorphology, botany, ecosystem management, geography, astrology, and beyond. While most classes come for the day, camping facilities are also available.
