Do you know a high school student who's interested in biology? We are now accepting applications for the Wildlife Ecology Research program!
This 3 week residential program gives students hands-on experience with field research techniques and introduces them to college-level ecology and biology principles. Students will have lessons from a variety of scientists, including our own Executive Director, visiting researchers who are actively researching at the Preserve, and academics from nearby colleges including Siena and the University at Albany.
This program is a great opportunity for students to learn about biology and ecology, and gain valuable experience while doing so. Students perform a small individual research project during the program, and present it at the end of their stay.
Previous students have studied territoriality in sapsuckers, tree preferences in the invasive climbing vine oriental bittersweet, and the impacts of beech bark disease on the Preserves hardwood forests.
Applications are now being accepted for both early and standard admission. To learn more about the program and to apply, click here.
