But, obviously my desire to maintain this blog more frequently is not matching up to my ability to do so. (Sigh.)
The next few posts will be belated recaps of the rest of the fall and winter activities, and then once I'm caught up I'll dig in to the TERF program planning and the SIFT Cohort 2 recruitment.
This educational collaboration between Washington University's Tyson Research Center and the Missouri Botanical Garden's Shaw Nature Reserve is designed to engage St. Louis area high school students in scientifically-based exploration of the natural world. Linked programs of field training (SIFT) and field research (TERF) provide teenagers with experiences that realistically reflect research in environmental biology. Participating teens learn a variety of field investigation skills and then have the opportunity to put those new skills to work assisting career scientists with real research projects.
