A new program at Texas Wildlife Association called, "Land, Water, & Wildlife Expeditions." These expeditions will engage youth ages 11-17 and a parent/guardian on a 1-to-3-day non-consumptive outdoor experience on private land. Each expedition will be centered around a different theme such as ornithology and birding, water ecology and angler education, photography in nature, and more. These experiences will be facilitated by a group of trained mentors, volunteers, and natural resource experts to introduce participants to the outdoors and the world of conservation and land stewardship. We will be hosting our inaugural Expeditions Mentor Training April 30 and May 1. The following is a glance at the curriculum for the Mentor Training:
Research in the Martina Lab incorporates many elements of plant ecology, invasion ecology and ecosystem ecology to study global change in wetlands and grasslands. We use field, laboratory, and computational modeling techniques to test hypotheses concerning some of the most important drivers of global change, such as biological invasion, nitrogen deposition and climate change.
If you are interesting in joining our lab please send me an email at email@example.com and include a description of your research interests and a current CV/resume.
