Arts on Tap: The NSF NEON Project and our Northwoods
Date: Wednesday, July 27
Aubrey Schoff and Abigail Schuster
Cost: FREE to attend
The NEON Project (National Ecological Observatory Network) is a 30-year National Science Foundation (NSF) funded research project, a network of 81 field sites across the United States designed by ecologists to provide open data for all. NEON’s purpose is to understand large-scale ecological patterns and consequences of human activity and how regional and smaller-scale ecological phenomena integrate to create large-scale problems. Scientist-presenters Abby Schuster and Aubrey Schoff are employed as Field Technicians with NEON this summer, working in the field each day to understand our Northwoods through scientific observation.
Aubrey has a Master’s degree in Environmental Management and a Bachelor of Arts in Environment and Sustainability from Western Colorado University. Abby has a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology/Ecology from Northern Michigan University.
Join Aubrey and Abby as they chronicle details of their important research within our Northwoods.
