Wild Spartans Series - December

December 8, 2020 7:00PM - 8:00PM


Contact: Laura Quist , Anne Kretschmann , Seth Martin , Veronica Bolhuis

Join 4-H staff as we meet scientists from across Michigan State University (MSU) Extension, the MSU Department of Fisheries and Wildlife, and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Take a look into life as a fisheries and wildlife researcher and manager! Follow along as we climb through bogs, peer into bear dens, mist net songbirds, snorkle for fish, or perhaps even tag deer. Meet researchers, learn about their field work, and the education and career path they've followed to get there.

REGISTRATION REQUIRED FOR ZOOM LINK/PASSWORD. https://events.anr.msu.edu/wild_spartans/

ABOUT THIS SERIES: Sessions last approximately 30 minutes and will feature 1-2 guest researchers. Following presentations, youth will be encouraged to ask questions to learn more through a live Q&A with scientists. Suggested audience age is 12-19 years. Viewers are encouraged to watch together with their families. This series is open to non-4-H youth and is free of charge.
