Education and Outreach

As a publicly-funded Long-Term Ecological Research Program, we are dedicated to sharing what we do with the community. Through academic programs, outreach, and experiential research opportunities we strengthen our bonds with other students, researchers, and New Mexicans.

If you are interested in partnering with SEV LTER for a tour, speaking engagement, or other collaborative effort, please reach out to Program Manager Missy Bacigalupa.
