– Science Summit
Please join the South Mountain Research Corps next April for our second Science Summit (location to be announced). The program will feature presentations on topics as diverse as endangered species, water quality, silviculture, archaeology, and climate change. A panel discussion and question and answer session is also planned that will help establish future research priorities in our region. We’re hoping to see lots of young scholars and researchers from regional universities with an interest in the natural, geological and human history of the South Mountain Landscape. Please save the date, and plan on sharing your thoughts and priorities for scientific research in South Mountain country!
A biennial Science Summit celebrates student research through the South Mountain Research Corps program. The 2019 Science Summit focused on building connections between Landowners & Land Managers (private and public) and Researchers (academic institutions, university students and partners, conservation organizations and partners). These connections are the foundation for building an implementable program that considers land management logistics as well as academic institution capacity.
