Are you a full-time student who will have junior or senior status by Fall 2010? Are you majoring in environmental studies, natural resources, biology, ecology, hydrology, resource economics, or statistics? Does working in the scenic eastern Sierra Nevada watershed, with renowned University of Nevada, Reno research faculty, on real-world environmental conservation projects, sound exciting to you? Summer 2010 REU projects will range from the impact of wildfire to watershed restoration to water quality issues facing Lake Tahoe. Doing hands-on research, you’ll learn how science influences land and water use policies, management, and conservation. And, you’ll learn how to present the research you do. Throughout your ten-week, REU experience, you’ll be provided with on-campus housing. You’ll also earn a $4250 stipend, just for participating in the program. If doing real science with great mentors in one of the West’s most spectacular regions sounds like a good way to spend your summer, the 2010 REU Program could be your ticket to ride!
