Calling all environmentally-minded teens! Are you interested in exploring what a career in the environmental sciences, environmental engineering, or conservation looks like? Spend an entire week exploring outside, doing authentic field work to collect and analyze data that scientists use to understand more about wildlife habitats, water resources, sustainability, and climate change. The week will be filled with outdoor discoveries and extended hikes, science experiments, and learning how to use science tools and laboratory equipment. We will plan to travel in our van to explore local colleges and meet local scientists during our week together. Along the way, we will also explore career opportunities in environmental science and sustainability. Campers may attend both weeks; topics will be similar, but the activities will be different.
