EAST ALTON – The National Great Rivers Research and Education Center (NGRREC ) will highlight the work of its interns and staff during a special November Neighbor Nights event on Tuesday, November 15, 2022.

The event will run from 6-8 p.m., beginning with an open poster session and an optional guided tour of the field station at 6:30 p.m. Guests are welcome to join us in the Riverview Room at 7 p.m. as interns present their projects.

“NGRREC’s intern program provides a unique research experience for undergraduate students in the greater St. Louis area,” said NGRREC Assistant Amy Monroe. “While some interns this semester are continuing research, they began in spring 2022; others are participating in projects that expand the scope of our program, including science communication and media relations.”

The fall intern class has eight members with two Lewis and Clark Community College (L&C) students participating in the internship program.

This semester’s internship program is funded by NGRREC, the Monticello College Foundation and the Living Earth Collaborative.
