Field intern

June 2018 - August 2018 East Bethel, MN
“I loved the sense of community developed among the interns, as well as the opportunity to learn 70+ native prairie species and conduct an independent project.”


June 2017 - August 2017 East Bethel, MN
“Part of the internship includes designing, carrying out, and presenting your own independent research project! It was a great firsthand experience at carrying out a scientific study in a learning environment. My mentor taught me so much and I felt very accomplished and confident with my proposal and report writing skills as well as data analysis by the end of the summer.”
