Location: 2 Locations in South Carolina
Exploration Hannon: Located in the upstate Blue Ridge Mountains. A mountain geology and ecology field study program designed around the processes and skills of scientific inquiry. Students will discover science concepts and engage in scientific thinking through investigations that explore the topographical phenomenon called the Blue Ridge Escarpment - a drastic and sudden 3,000-foot shift in elevation from flat piedmont to steep mountains. Activities include stream mapping, map and compass, mountain geology and ecology, aquatic ecology, zip lines, a climbing tower and more.
Expedition Sewee: Located on the coast north of Charleston. This program offers an unforgettable study of coastal ecosystems; how they function, what they provide and why they’re important to preserve. Students and teachers will explore beaches, salt marshes, landforms and cultural resources of the Low Country. Surrounded by the Francis Marion National Forest and the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge, Expedition Sewee is perfectly staged to give students an up-close look at plant and animal interactions in the natural world. Activities include salt marsh studies, a barrier island beach study, boat rides, birding, crabbing, cast netting, games and more. (Must have Marine Science degree or experience.)
Twice a month pay of $600-$650 plus room, board, and a sickness/accidental insurance plan.
