Tonight is an opportunity to speak to a group of college students who are spending their winter break learning rather than playing. These top students, including some grad students, gather from across the US for a tour to meet with and ask questions of top biologists. I enjoy their questions every year. I start by saying, “I don’t have anything prepared, and I won’t know what to say if you don’t ask questions.” The questions flow until the leader says it’s time for the next activity—usually after an hour to an hour and a half. It’s from this group that we get many of our summer interns. Judy Thon, Director of Education for the Bear Center, will be with me to tell them what we offer for internships. Judy will take a picture of it happening. I have to dress up for this in my best Bear Center shirt.
Thank you for all you do.
