SUNY Oswego’s Rice Creek Field Station is offering a new education program for teens.
Conservation Field Studies will focus on environmental stewardship along with team building.
The deadline to apply while being considered for a scholarship to the new program is April 1.
The program runs from Aug. 12 to 14 and is designed for teens who wish to take part in a summer program but who have aged out of the field station’s Exploring Nature program. It is open to rising ninth-graders to just graduated teens.
Participants in Conservation Field Studies will investigate the interdependence of Rice Creek’s ecosystems through field studies and projects. They will examine the importance of stewardship through habitat study, animal habits and real-life applications.
Registration is $75 with a discount for Rice Creek Associates members.
Information and scholarship and registration materials can be found at oswego.edu/conservationstudies.
