Junior Rangers 2013 Applications being accepted

Junior Rangers 2013
Applications being accepted 

Do you love the outdoors?  Join our committed staff of Junior Rangers as we explore the habitats of the UMass Boston Nantucket Field Station.  Become part of the team working to collect  scientific data you'll use in school and help foster a greater understanding of the natural world.

We ask our Junior Rangers to commit to two days a week (parent & student choose) M-F from 9-12.  One day will be devoted to assisting in guided nature walks and one day to pursuing data collection on a topic the Junior Ranger (along with parent and science stewardship staff) chooses for themselves.

Students are required to be able to work independently as well as in groups. This program is for students ages 9-13.

Interested parties should submit, via e-mail a one or two page essay "Why I think I'll be a good Junior Ranger". Send them via e-mail to
