I sit here finally home after a very long summer of incredible experiences. One of the most amazing experiences was coordinating and participating in the first ever Educational Outreach field trip at the ESA Annual Meeting.
My experience at this year’s ESA Annual meeting was unforgettable. Returning as a graduate school student and SEEDS Alumni Mentor, I not only had the chance to connect with old and new participants of the SEEDS program
ESA’s SEEDS program is pleased to announce a fall field trip to the Santa Barbara Coastal Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) site, October 25-28, 2007. Undergraduate students with a sincere interest in promoting the SEEDS mission – to diversify and advance the field of ecology – are eligible to apply.
Think ecology and economy don’t mix? Think again. Most of us are used to relate money with industrial technology, bulldozing properties to construct condos, hotels, expensive living complexes, malls, to summarize: everything that has to do with harming the environment.
A week ago, I had the honor of participating in the SEEDS field trip to Chiapas. I had been to two past field trips, and just couldn’t pass this one up, especially because it was in southern Mexico.
My name is Jallah Rouse, I am a Biology major at Johnson C. Smith University, and I recently had the extreme pleasure of attending a SEEDS field trip to the Mexican state of Chiapas.
Sustainabilityï¿½ sometimes it sounds like an ideal. However, on our SEEDS field trip to Chiapas, Mexico, students from the United States, Puerto Rico and Mexico were able to witness small cooperatives of indigenous agricultural workers working together with scientists to make sustainability a reality.
