Research and Resiliency: Investigating the Local Effects of Global Changes
Come and learn how scientists and land managers work together to protect and preserve the resilience of local ecosystems and communities.
Learn how you can use data collection and analysis to engage your students and introduce them to scientific research and potential career opportunities.
Venture into the field with local scientists and use a variety of tools and techniques to collect, analyze and communicate field data.
Assess your own ecological footprint and consider the most effective ways you can make a difference.
Build and take back back to your classroom research equipment to use during field studies with your students.
Each day will be filled with field studies, “hands-on, minds-on” investigations and discussions aimed to to highlight the resiliency of our local habitats.
