The class was made up of seven junior and senior boys who had already successfully completed a regular one-year course in biology. The overall classroom time was 120 hours. Five hours were spent in the school and the remaining time was spent in the field. During the 5-week course, dove banding, wildlife survey of a section of land, gill-netting of fish, vegetation transect, and identification of birds, plants, fish, reptiles, amphibians, and mammals was carried on.
