BEMP featured in New Mexico Kids! Family Magazine: “Kids, Families Help With Longterm Environmental Research”
BEMP was recently invited to be on Albuquerque’s Public Radio station KUNM for the Children’s Hour (originally broadcast on Nov 11, 2017). BEMP Co-Director (and porcupine expert!) Dan Shaw and about 20 kids joined host Katie Stone, and shared all about BEMP’s favorite animal – PORCUPINES! Jayden and Elena were the BEMP students who helped Dan educate the listener audience about porcupines.
Dan Shaw, BEMP’s Co-Director presents a webinar about monitoring ecosystems for the GreenTeacher network of environmental professionals. BEMP’s compelling story of citizen science, done by students, that informs public policy and land management in New Mexico is not to be missed. Enjoy!
Dan Shaw, BEMP Co-Founder and current Co-Director and Bosque School Science Faculty gives a TEDx Talk at the ABQ-ED event. His students’ work includes projects such as measuring hydrocarbons along the Rio Grande, mapping all beaver activity within a county, and determining if the imperiled rabbit-like pika of the Jemez Mountains survived recent catastrophic wildfires. Helping students become stewards of their home watersheds and citizen scientists in a time of global weirding is his life’s work.
BEMP is a partner of the ‘Native Fish in the Classroom’ project – a program with the US Fish & Wildlife Service. Our BEMP classroom has a native fish tank for students to observe and learn about the biota of our river.
