Note: The Freshwater Ecology and Concepts in Ecology Field camps will both be held at Calperum. Students enrolling in both courses will be required to complete a clash override form and Faculty of Sciences staff will override this clash for you. However, this clash will not cause you problems because students attending the Freshwater Ecology camp (9-10 April) will be required to remain at Calperum to continue on and attend the other field camp for Concepts of Ecology (11-14 April).
