Wilkes University environmental scientists and engineers will guide you in fun and educational outdoor experiences while encouraging stewardship of natural resources.
You will collect and analyze water, soil and macroinvertebrate samples, collect stream flow measurements and utilize geophysical instruments at Frances Slocum State Park, the Back Mountain Trail and Nesbitt Park. Then you will compare the data and interpret the impact of land use, development and conservation on water quality and quantity.
As you conduct scientific research, you will also gain experience in effective team, relationship and communication skills. You will leave camp ready to act as an environmental steward in your own school and community.
