Student Research in Acadia National Park

ENV students are working this summer in Acadia National Park with Dr. Allyson Jackson

Over the course of the summer, seven Purchase College ENV undergrads will be working on a research project in Acadia National Park, looking at how emergent aquatic insects move mercury from aquatic to terrestrial ecosystems. You can follow along with their summer on our social media accounts (@JacksonEcoLab on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) and through the project website

Dr. Allyson Jackson received a grant for this work on cross-ecosystem subsidies in Acadia from the Second Century Stewardship Fellowship program and the Purchase College Robert O. Fehr Research Professorship.
