The Woodland Ecology Research Mentorship (WERM) is open to current 9th, 10th, Y1s who will be 15 years old before June 15th, 2020. This 14-month program provides a unique opportunity to work with local ecologists and take part in ecological research projects. WERM students learn content and develop basic research skills during their first summer through hands-on projects and coursework. Building on their skills at weekend workshops during the academic year, students embark on a final research project under the guidance of a science mentor for their second summer.
The application deadline for this program is March 29th, 2020.

Through our partnership with the college of Mount Saint Vincent, we offer two credit bearing college courses: Restoration of NYC’s Natural Areas and Mapping NYC’s Urban Environment: An Intro to GIS. WERM students take both courses their first summer, while Forest Project interns take only one each summer they participate. Students do not pay tuition!
