Learn about environmental science, clean technology and associated careers. For one week this summer, high school students participate in hands-on aquatic and terrestrial research while looking ahead to discover educational pathways for environmental science career fields. Join us this summer for a week-long field intensive program that explores these areas and more. For one week we will hike, canoe and discover our local ecosystems. If you are interested in getting outside this summer and exploring careers in environmental science, this is the program for you.
