In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, KBS has shifted to on-line and remote undergraduate programs for the summer. While students can’t be here in person, we are offering online versions of several of our field courses and an online professional development program (link). The KBS Professional Development program meets from 4 to 5 p.m. EDT on Mondays via Zoom, and is open to any student interested in learning more about the skills and experiences important for pursuing research or related careers in ecology, evolution, and similar disciplines.
