Drexel Environmental Science Leadership Academy


"Drexel's weeklong Environmental Science Leadership Academy is one part adventure travel, one part leadership training, and two parts environmental science field experience. Students will habitat-hop from seaside, to salt marsh, to maritime forest, all along the New Jersey coastline, gaining hands-on experience in a range of research areas, including beach, marsh and Pine Barren ecology, botany and paleontology. The "tour guides" on this adventure will be all-star Drexel professors and expert scientists from the nation’s oldest natural history museum, the Academy of Natural Sciences. Students will gain a broad understanding of what it means to be an environmental scientist and what it takes to be a leader in the field.


Based at the Barnegat Bay Field Station in Ocean Township, NJ, the Environmental Science Leadership Academy opens with a canoe trip through the Pine Barrens and ends with a fossil dig with Drexel paleontologist Dr. Ken Lacovara, whose world-class Mantua dig site has been featured on the Discovery Channel. Through a combination of theory-based courses and a lot of hands-on experience—the heart of a Drexel education—students will bond together through a research-rich summer adventure that will open the door to a future in environmental science and related fields."
