Funded Research Program at the Pierce Cedar Creek Institute, Hastings, MI

This summer research program, grant funded by the Willard and Jessie Pierce Foundation, is a cooperative effort between myself as lead researcher and a student research assistant. It allows students to work on valuable ecological research and receive a stipend for their work. Students work on the project from the development of the grant proposal to the writing the final paper and presentation of the research at research symposium at PCCI and elsewhere.
