Possible projects

Join us to participate in impactful science-based projects guided by LANL scientists. We will investigate the health of our local ecosystem including rivers, forests and wildlife that inhabit them. We will learn about conditions that lead to drought and fire that result in habitat loss. We will also brainstorm ideas on how to mitigate the effects of climate change locally and develop an understanding of conservation efforts at a global scale. We will engage in hands-on activities that directly impact our local communities positively.
