Park’s ISAMR Club Featured on WYPR

Today WYPR spoke with Park’s Upper School science department chair Julie Rogers and Poly’s Upper School environmental science teacher Vicki Mathew about the International Student-led Arctic Monitoring and Research program (ISAMR) and their latest trip to the Arctic!

 After a two year hiatus, Park sent 8 students to Manitoba to continue their study of permafrost. In addition to their permafrost data collection, the group also studied fox dens and their impact on the beach ridge habitat and caribou migration through vegetation analysis. In the interview you’ll hear about their extensive research, about working with students from the Junior Canadian Ranger Program, and how the ISAMR program is expanding into other regions.
