The HWS Update

ESSYI concluding Sunday

The annual Environmental Studies Summer Youth Institute began Sunday, July 9 on the HWS campus.

The Institute annually provides exceptional opportunities for high school students entering their junior or senior years to explore the scientific, social and humanistic perspectives of environmental issues.

The two-week, college-level interdisciplinary program is designed to introduce the students to a variety of environmental issues and perspectives on nature and our environment.

Participants were scheduled to do research with faculty members in a variety of locations: on the HWS William F. Scandling, aboard the 65-foot vessel on Seneca Lake, in streams, quaking bogs, the Adirondack mountains, and the Colleges science laboratories.
