Projects, Collaborations and Scholarships
The SEEDS Network for Alumni and Professionals (SNAP) provides a network of all non-undergraduate level ecologist from, and in support of, a more diverse ecology. Through this network opportunities for educational, professional, and personal growth are organized in the form of workshops, forums, and seminars/webinars. Our contributions back to the SEEDS program are integral to our existence and to the advancement of ecology as a discipline of science. Some ways in which we contribute are listed below.

Local Chapter Site Visits- visit your local Chapter to provide support, advice, and volunteer time
SNAP Member Field Trip Invitations- as a SNAP member you can participate when geographical/or ecological expertise fits with the field trip

Consistent Involvement in the Leadership Meetings- involvement may range from contributing to the planning committee to presenting your work to meeting participants
