Women in STEM Opportunity: Yellowstone Wildlife Ecology

Brochure –> Yellowstone Wildlife Ecology Program

Ecology Project International, a Missoula-based non-profit organization seeking to improve science education through field-based student-scientist partnerships, is in the midst of a huge STEM4Good campaign. As part of this campaign, we are seeking to recruit Montana young women to participate in one of our 5-day Yellowstone Wildlife Ecology Programs, which are uniquely positioned to empower and excite young women about field science.

You’ll spend the week in and around Yellowstone National Park, where National Park Service scientists and National Parks Conservation
Association staff will work with you on habitat restoration and bison grazing projects. You’ll observe the park’s famous Lamar Valley wolf packs and fantastic thermal features will be on display nearby.
