Beyond the Trail: The Art of Science

Student: Brandie Brooks

Community Partner: Timucuan Parks Foundation

The third series of “Beyond the Trail themed, “The Art of Science,” attempts to break through the artificial boundaries that keep the creative mind separate from the scientific one. Through community service, networking, and handson experiences, participants gained a better understanding of how different art forms and creative outlets can be integrated into scientific research and environmental conservation efforts to more effectively grab the attention of the general public. After completing the program, members will be more likely to consider all of the artistic and scientific tools at their disposal the next time they get involved in defending their environment and local preserves.
