Feedback form is now closed.
Ecology is an increasingly collaborative endeavor; the next generation of LTER scientists need experience working across sites. How can LTER sites leverage REU and other Undergraduate Research Experiences (URE) programs to further network-based inquiry? Come hear from mentors and students about the outcomes of a cross-site project. Then, participate in theme-based round-table discussions for researchers to forge collaborative URE projects, while education professionals discuss cross-site program development. The goal for the 2019 field season is to facilitate the development of 3-5 cross-site URE projects. The long-term goals are to refine the research/education model, and to seek funding to build a sustained cross-LTER URE program.
