You can’t pick a better or more beautiful place to spend a summer than in a National Park. In 2018, Mosaics in Science (MIS) interns will travel to Denali National Park, Rocky Mountain National Park, and Point Reyes National Seashore, to name a few. Each of the sites has competed with many others to be part of MIS 2018 and are working to make the summer experience fulfilling. With these diverse sites comes an array of research and education opportunities in an equally broad suite of habitats and climates. From Alaska to Colorado to Washington, D.C. and Florida, each intern will have a different, yet similar experience. While one may sweat during turtle surveys, another may be bundled in a coat and hat to while tracking butterflies. Whatever the experience, it will last a lifetime!
