Outside Science (inside parks): Oak Monitoring in Sequoia & Kings Canyon

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, our Outside Science crew heads to Shenandoah National Park.

Lots of students in urban areas don't get a chance to get outdoors in nature, much less use it as a living laboratory. Our Outside Science (inside parks) crew tagged along with one group of teenagers who got to spend the day at Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks using science to better understand what's happening in the blue oak woodlands (or environment) of their local national park.
