Become an Eco Ranger as you 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 exhibit 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. Are you ready to take the future of our planet into your hands?
