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.

The Fire Team Continues to Grow

Fire Ecology Team's forest plot.

As we move into July, the Fire Ecology Team has moved into the forest for their next chunk of work. The new July TERFers, Kathleen Endicott and Noah Feuer, quickly learned the ropes and have been hard at work ever since.

A pleased Kathleen during her first week of work.
