With funding from the National Science Foundation, my lab and the Center for Climatic Research, in partnership with the Kemp Natural Resources Station, and with consultation from the Wisconsin Alliance for Minority Participation (WiscAMP), are collaborating with the College of Menominee Nation (CMN) to provide educational opportunities in global change field research for college and high school students on the Menominee Nation and surrounding tribes.

CMN is an accredited 2-yr tribal college in the Menominee Nation, Keshena, WI The Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin have been pioneers in the development of sustainable forestry techniques and consequently CMN offers AA degree programs in Natural Resources, Sustainable Development, and Biology & Physical Sciences. The purpose of this course is to provide greater exposure to careers in global change and ecosystem research via inquiry-based projects at Desai lab field sites, and attempt to interest some to pursue baccalaureate and graduate degrees in the sciences.

Here are links to courses from each year: ForCLIMATE2011 ForCLIMATE2012 ForCLIMATE2013
