THE STORY:

My goal of this fundraser is in hopes that I can attend The Yellowstone Winter Ecology program lead by Ecology Project International. This one of a kind 9 day program includes course work and instruction covering conservation biology, wildlands management, and the scientific process, as well as ten plus hours of field research with park scientists on ongoing research projects in Yellowstone National Park. This project will be held during our Spring of 2017 (Yellowstone's Winter). Some specifics we will be doing in the park include: Identifing different species of native wildlife in the park based by tracks left in the snow, Exploring the area's geothermal features, Learning both how to properly to collect scientific data and how the data would be used by reaserchers, observing wolves with a wolf education specialist from Yellowstone, ontaking in reaserch projects all week and presenting the findings to peers, and relaxing in the hot springs along with learning to snow shoe! By being able to participate in this program, I will be able to gain experience in the scientific field, in which I am planning to enter after Highschool, Learn more about the science behind the breathtaking Yellowstone National Park, along with creating many memories and gaining knowledge that will be carried with me throughout the rest of my life. This project is something I have dreamed of doing since I decided to enter into the biology field when I go to college, and is an once in a life time opprotunity in which will not only look great on a college and job application, but also gives me college credit hours that will transfer to the college of my choosing.
