Happy summer term everyone! It was the summer of 2019 when Shana Barnett of Marina del Rey, Calif., captured the beauty of the Mongolian steppe at Hustai National Park and some kite flying during her Earth Expeditions: Mongolia course. Shana also traveled to Baja and India with EE and earned a Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) in the biological sciences from Miami University through the Global Field Program.

Meghan Manary (at left) is a current GFP student who will be hosting two BioBlitzes for folks of all ages to explore Nebraska State Parks with some of the state's best biologists! Meghan, who serves as the Southwest Regional Outdoor Educator for the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, developed the BioBlitzes as part of her master's coursework. She also received donations from the University of Nebraska and Pheasants Forever to fully cover the cost of seed for both community pollinator gardens! 👏👏
