|L-R: TERFer Maddy, undergrad Olivia, and TERFer Adam watch the followers climb on their newly launched St. Louis Box Turtle Project page.|
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.

TERFers working on Facebook?!
Today the Turtle Tracking Team has been hard at work developing a Facebook Page to showcase their project. This page will keep other researchers, students, and turtle enthusiasts updated on the project with updates on turtle tracking and turtle health. You can check it out at St. Louis Box Turtle Project!
