Are you interested in exploring the fast growing field of Wildlife Science?
During this six-day field based program students will have many learning opportunities to explore the evolution, anatomy, and ecology of the four major groups of wildlife (amphibians, reptiles, birds, and mammals), as well as learn how to identify common species by sight, sound, and animal spoor.
Students will also participate in a variety of hands-on workshops, in coordination with local wildlife professionals, where they will learn proper techniques for the capture, care, and handling of wild animals.
A large portion of this program will be held outdoors, so students should plan to dress accordingly bringing hiking shoes/sneakers for walking, a rain coat/wind breaker, and at least one pair of long pants.
We will host a graduation lunch on the last day of the program, which parents/families are welcome and encouraged to attend.
For: High School Students ages 15-18 who are interested wildlife science exploration
