The Outside Science (inside parks) series shares stories of crucial, creative science. Each episode, produced in collaboration with Colorado State University, highlights the many ways young people are getting involved in science in parks. Part citizen science, part education, these videos cover topics such as sea turtles and light pollution, toxic algal blooms, and mercury levels in dragonfly larvae. Watch this and all the previous episodes on the Explore Nature website.
In this episode, the Outside Science film crew spent some time at Fire Island National Seashore with Student Conservation Association (SCA) interns tracking bats and fighting pine beetles.
