Become an Eco Ranger! Lace up your boots and experience the urban environment through a conservation lens! Learn the tools and techniques conservation scientists use to gather information about endangered habitats, and explore the Museum’s biodiversity resources in the exhibition halls, genetics labs, and beyond. Then head out into the field to explore the local environment and get hands-on experience collecting data! With the help of the institute’s eco-guides, students will develop a conservation plan based on their fieldwork. Get ready to take the future of our planet into your hands.
