Sky Islands and Students

UA News covered some of the trips inspired by fellow grad student and blogger Ben Blonder, Mount Lemmon Sky Center Director Alan Strauss, and teachers at Inner City Outings that I have been helping to organize. You can read the story here. (One correction: the tree students are ringed around is a Douglas fir, not a pine!)

A few more photos from the interdisciplinary geology-ecology-astronomy trips we have taken 10-13 year olds on:
