More about the program:
Year One: Through field tours and exposure to research projects in action, scholars engage with conservation issues in a broad range of ecosystems, from temperate rainforests to urban farms. Scholars develop skills, perspectives, and relationships that serve as a foundation for the second summer, and their futures in conservation. Learn more here: https://bit.ly/2PeQdHX
Year Two: Scholars engage with a regional partner in an internship, while continuing to build community and deepen their analysis of conservation, equity, and inclusion. The summer culminates in a "Conservation Scholar Summit" that centers storytelling and provides career networking. Learn more here: https://bit.ly/2S68gia
