Communications and SPC Administrator, Drinking Source Water Protection Division of the Sault Ste. Marie Region Conservation Authority (Ontario)

"Most natural science classes at LSSU offer students as much hands-on experience (lab hours) as lecture hours, which ensures that the university experience prepares us for the real world careers, whether you work at a desk or out in the field, or both. There are endless advantages and opportunities available to LSSU students due to its location on an international border.

I found my career path on campus when my advisor posted a job for the Bi-national Public Advisory Council (BPAC), a group dedicated to and overseeing the clean-up the St. Mary's River. I was able to gain experience and network on both sides of the border, ultimately finding full-time employment before I graduated with my biology degree."

Aquatic Ecology and Fisheries Science

July 14 - 19, 2013
Grades: 9th - 12th

Develop skills in capturing, identifying, and comparing the animal communities, from insects to fish, that live in our local streams, lakes, and rivers. You will gain experience using basic aquatic ecology research techniques and equipment, including nets, traps, seines, and water quality meters. Learn the basics of fisheries science: set fyke nets and minnow traps, practice fish identification, learn to tag fish and predict population size with faculty from the LSSU Aquatic Research Laboratory.

Biomedical Sciences

July 21 - 26, 2013
Grades: 9th - 12th

Learn and experiment in the state of the art science labs at LSSU. Labs will include dissections in the anatomy lab, experiments in the physiology lab, and DNA extraction in the genetics lab. This is an excellent camp for all who are interested in science, medicine, and health. 

Field Ecology and Environmental Science

July 21 - 26, 2013
Grades: 9th - 12th

Field activities will include plant and animal identification, landscape interpretation, habitat analysis, stream quality assessment, mammal tracking, bird banding, aquatic insect analysis, night time insect trapping, and more. You will do background research and work up field samples in our biology labs that you collected. Analyze your data in our computer labs and learn how GIS and other computer applications help in ecology and conservation biology.practice fish identification, learn to tag fish and predict population size with faculty from the LSSU Aquatic Research Laboratory. 

 

Student Research...

Sault Ste Marie, Michigan

Lisa researched the use of Pointe aux Chenes beaches in St. Ignace, Mich., as an important stopover site by migratory birds. Her study determined that 34 migratory species used it as a stopover site; 50% were shorebirds and about 24% were ducks. She also found that the loggerhead shrike, an endangered species, use the beaches as a stopover site as well. Her results will help preserve Pointe aux Chenes for the millions of migratory birds.
