Summer Projects

At Wildlands Studies, we offer projects in the summer, fall, winter and spring. This summer we have projects in the USA and international locations, with short (16 day) and long (6-7 weeks) projects. Our summer projects are held in areas best accessible during the summer months, and provide exciting opportunities to study regions confronted with environmental issues. Participants have an opportunity to study key concerns confronting our wildlife and wildland areas.
