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.

SIFT Spring Saturday (more like winter!)

The weather for the final Saturday of the SIFT program looked a lot closer to winter than spring.  But, of course, the SIFTers were properly geared up to handle work in the field!
