Undergraduate students can earn credit for participating in internships and research projects at the Field Station. UWM undergraduates can enroll in independent study classes through the Department of Biological Sciences or Conservation and Environmental Science for 1-6 credits, depending on the project. Projects can be undertaken during the spring, summer, or fall semesters. Contact Jim Reinartz or Gretchen Meyer at the Field Station for more information.
The Field Station sometimes employs undergraduates in the summer for work in natural area management and stewardship. Most of these positions require strenuous physical field work such as various exotic species control activities. In addition to learning to do natural area management work, employees have the opportunity to gain experience in other areas such as surveying, plant identification, and vegetation description methods. The Field Station also helps local, non-profit conservation organizations fill positions in natural area management.
