What’s it Like to be a CORRE Intern? Let’s Find Out!

Each summer, the Center for Ohio River Research and Education (CORRE) at the Thomas More College Biology Field Station invites undergraduate college students to apply for paid research internships which last through the summer months. These internships, funded through a variety of grants, are primarily in the fields of aquatic biology, ecology and environmental science with projects involving animal husbandry (fish & mussels), aquaculture, aquatic toxicology, big river sampling, bioassessments & biomonitoring, and DNA sequencing. In addition to completing duties that directly measure the health of the Ohio River river system, interns learn skills that help them become environmental educators.

This year, in honor of the 50th Anniversary of the Biology Field Station, we thought it would be fitting (and fun) to ask the interns to send Moreover their observations and experiences as they spend time on the River. For a sneak peak of who the summer interns are click here, for more information on the current Biology Field Station projects click here, to read more about the intern experience please check back regularly! I, for one, can not wait to see what they are up to at the Field Station this summer.

All gifts, large and small, are vital to our future. Please consider donating to Thomas More College online today!
