The 2012 Summer Environmental Exchange

We are still accepting applications for the 2012 Summer Environmental Exchange (SEE) Program. This is a 9-week long, experiential, place-based, watershed education and leadership development program hosted at the watersheds of Lake Tahoe in the USA and Lake Baikal in Russia, and at the Selenga River, Lake Baikal’s upper watershed, in Mongolia. The program’s primary themes are watershed protection, sustainable development, and cultural exchange. It will bring together young, environmental leaders from North America, Russia, Mongolia, and other parts of the world to study environmental science, policy, and management at these two superlative lakes.

Whether they study the hard sciences, environmentalstudies, conservation, Russian, international studies, engineering or any other field, they will be an asset to the program and through that, to the management and preservation of Lake Tahoe and Lake Baikal.

The application deadline is February 7th, but any applications received beforehand will be evaluated on a rolling basis.  Spaces are limited so students are encouraged to apply early. Application materials can be found on our website atwww.tahoebaikal.org.
