This summer, fisheries and wildlife junior Garrett Knowlton worked as a National Park Service intern and field technician at Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming, studying bats. More specifically, he was studying how bats are affected by lights in the park. The research is a collaborative effort between the National Park Service and the Barber Sensory Ecology Lab at Boise State University.

Knowlton is a member of the Justin S. Morrill Leadership Fellows, a group of undergraduate students in the MSU College of Agriculture and Natural Resources who have demonstrated outstanding academic achievement and leadership.
