Junior Scientist Fellows Program

For nearly a decade, the Land Trust has partnered with Florida Atlantic University's Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute (HBOI) to provide local high school students with a unique opportunity to engage in scientific research on Land Trust properties. The research conducted by the student fellows provides critically needed information for the Land Trust to manage its shoreline properties and maximize the preservation of their native wildlife habitats and the Lagoon.

This program provides a wonderful opportunity for the Land Trust to engage the next generation of future scientists, while helping the Land Trust continue to manage its properties appropriately and effectively.
