Students enjoy hands-on activities in ecology, terrestrial and aquatic biology. They learn how people's activities impact the natural world and develop an appreciation for the unique environment that is an important part of the Cooperstown experience.  Students explore the depths of lakes and ponds with scientific instruments, capture animals and collect plants for research, and learn about new advances in science that are changing the way we live, work and play.
