Description:
The ESA SEEDS Program has opened applications for the Henry H. Gholz Spring National Field Trip to the Sevilleta Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER) site in La Joya, NM!

The Sevilleta LTER Project is located in and around the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge (NWR). The Refuge, which is managed by the US Department of the Interior, Fish and Wildlife Service, and its surroundings, are positioned at the intersection of several major biotic zones: Chihuahuan Desert grassland and shrubland to the south, Great Plains grassland to the north, Pi?on-Juniper woodland in the upper elevations of the neighboring mountains, Colorado Plateau shrub-steppe to the west, and riparian vegetation along the middle Rio Grande Valley. This convergence of biomes, however, has created an important research area for geology, hydrology, archeology, atmospheric science, biology, and ecology for many decades.

The selected students will have the opportunity to explore this unique station and gain hands on experience in ecology research practices. You will receive mentoring from SEEDS Alumni and staff about your future career in ecology!

The ESA SEEDS Program will cover all the students expenses for the field trip including; airfare, ground transportation, lodging, meals, and research materials. This is a fully funded opportunity, students who are chosen to participate will work with SEEDS staff to arrange their travel itineraries and dietary needs.

To be eligible, undergraduate students must be enrolled in college/university within the United States. Preference is given to Freshmen, Sophomores and other students that have not had prior opportunity to engage in ecology research or field experience. Students from underrepresented groups are highly encouraged to apply!
