Learn about restoration ecology while making new friends! The ERC is a service-learning program for high school students focusing on restoration of watershed and prairie habitats. Most days will be spent outdoors developing skills in field work, plant identification, and orienteering. Group discussions, projects, gis, and field trips will supplement the hands-on learning. Transportation for field trips will be provided. Throughout the school year, you will have opportunities to enhance those skills and assist in ongoing community projects. Participants will receive a stipend upon completion of each phase of the program.
