Sign up for the Restoration Team!

Splash is pulling together teams of scientists and students of the natural world (both young and old!) to help restore the vernal pool prairie at Mather. Teams will remove invasive weeds, monitor habitat, and identify the best means to restore and manage the vernal pool prairie over time. Volunteers will be guided by experienced scientists and mentors, so this is a great chance to learn more about this threatened ecosystem.


Splash Internship

Each year Splash mentors up to four interns, teaching them to facilitate experiential learning in nature and student-led scientific inquiry. Splash Trailblazer Internships are unpaid. We offer them as an investment in the next generation of science and outdoor educators because we know that experiential learning is what works for students of all ages. Interns do not replace professional staff, but learn from them and with them as they practice the art of nature-based science education.
