23 Feb Learning about Ecosystems and the Environment with Eco-Practicum
Posted at 10:17h in OG HeadquartersEco Practicum is an immersive summer environmental education and action program for college students and recent graduates. It takes place in the Catskill region of upstate New York and gives participants the chance to meet and work with experts in the fields of food, agriculture, animals, energy, and land use. Tuition reduction is available to Operation Groundswell alumni. Here is Rachelle Klapheke’s experience, a former participant who is now the intern at Eco Practicum. As a photography student, my interest in environmental science had always been limited to extracurricular activities and personal lifestyle choices. When the Community Agriculture Club at NYU sent out an e-mail about Eco Practicum, I knew that the program would be a way for me to finally invest the necessary time and mental effort into learning about timely and urgent environmental issues.
