Can pumpkin waste clean polluted waters? What native species returned after the Arizona wildfires of last year? Are non-native fish endangering brook trout in Lake Champlain? These are some of the questions that 13 student scientists explored through the American Museum of Natural History’s 15th Annual Young Naturalist Awards, a nationwide science-based research competition for kids in grades 7 through 12 supported by Alcoa Foundation.
