Registration is now open for two-week field research course

NatureBridge, the largest residential environmental education partner of the National Park Service, opened registration for the Summer Field Research Course at its Yosemite campus. This two-week immersive backcountry expedition will give participants the opportunity to conduct rigorous environmental science investigations in one of the most iconic national parks in the country.

The course offers the ultimate teen summer learning adventure. Students work with NatureBridge educators and produce their own field-based research project. These explorations deepen their understanding of the Sierra Nevada ecosystem and empower students to think critically about the world around them.

“Teenagers emerge from the Summer Field Research Course knowing how to think like scientists,” said Becky Zentmyer, course director. “The course is student-centered, inquiry-based learning at its most adventurous. Students learn field research skills that can transfer to high school, college and beyond.”

In Yosemite, students may choose from 2 sessions: June 28 through July 11 or July 26 through August 8. NatureBridge offers need-based financial aid to qualified participants.

Students interested in the program are encouraged to contact NatureBridge directly at 209-259-1125 or summerprogramscoordinator@naturebridge.org.

The Summer Field Research Course is also offered in Olympic National Park and Shenandoah National Park.
