GEAR UP MSU Welcomes Ecology Project International
- Tuesday, June 22, 2021 from 10:00am to 2:00pm
- throughout campus
GEAR UP MSU, in partnership with the Office of Admissions and MSU Department of Ecology, is proud to host Ecology Project International's Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem Summer Wildlife Ecology Program participants.
This program welcomes 15 students in grades 7-9 from Montana's 17 GEAR UP schools and inspires students, at a formative age, to incorporate the scientific process into their daily lives, consider science and research careers, and become community leaders. EPI's five-day summer wildlife ecology program blends wildlife research, conservation services, exploration of conservation issues, and science coursework with games, camping, and geysers! These students learn by doing and contribute in meaningful ways to research and service projects in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.
EPI's program participants and staff will wrap up their week-long adventure at Montana State University, where they will present their research projects, take a campus tour, and learn about higher education opportunities in science and ecology.
