We reach out to the K-12 community through Ecology Explorers, a program that aims to:
- develop and implement a schoolyard ecology program where students collect data similar to CAP LTER data.
- improve science literacy by exposing students and teachers to real research conducted by university-level scientists.
- enhance teachers’ capabilities to design lessons and activities that use scientific inquiry and encourage science.
CAP LTER provides opportunities for undergraduate students to apply theories and principles learned in the classroom to field and laboratory research.

Graduate student research and mentoring are fundamental to CAP LTER’s mission. CAP LTER provides an excellent platform for graduate research, and this research has been instrumental in forwarding scientific inquiry under the project.
