This popular field course focuses on the natural history of California, as students are immersed in different habitats across the state in order to gain first-hand experience in field observations naturalist work. Norris's Field Quarter, which was often co-taught with environmental studies Professor Stephen R. Gliessman, consisted of four field trips that were approximately five to ten days long. These trips involved lengthy rides on the university bus to sites such as the Granite Mountains in the Mojave Desert, Big Creek in Big Sur, Santa Cruz Island of the Channel Islands, Mount Tamalpais in Marin County, Kelso Dunes in the Mojave Desert, and Lake Mono of the Eastern Sierra.
Norris taught the Natural History Field Quarter from its first offering in 1973 up until his retirement from UCSC in 1990.
