Are you, or do you know a high school student looking for something FUN and FREE to do this summer? Do you have an interest in being out in nature and learning about plants?

Funded by the National Forest Service, and in partnership with the Native Plant Society, the Institute for Applied Ecology is offering a four day Summer Program geared towards Santa Fe high school students, grades 9-12.
