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 field science investigations in one of the most iconic national parks in the country.

The course offers the ultimate teen summer adventure. Students work with NatureBridge educators to develop and conduct 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.

"The inquiry-based nature of the course gives our students the ability to see the world as a scientist,” said John Patton, course supervisor. “Participants develop a deeper understanding of the environment through adventure, community-building, and natural discovery, all while learning valuable research skills that transfer directly to academic pursuits and beyond."

In Yosemite, students may choose from 2 sessions in the summer of 2016: June 26–July 9 or July 17–30. NatureBridge offers need-based financial aid to qualified participants.

Students interested in the program are encouraged to contact NatureBridge’s Summer Programs Manager directly at 415-758-1650 or summerprograms@naturebridge.org.

The Summer Field Research Course is also offered in Olympic National Park (July 10–22 and August 7–19) and Shenandoah National Park (June 20–24, June 27–July 1, August 1–5, and August 8–12). Please contact NatureBridge’s Summer Programs Manager with any questions.
