The Cornell Lab of Ornithology is partnering with SFI to provide opportunities for youth to get outside and enjoy nature by building a nest box for native birds and report nesting activity for scientists to use. This project is engaging youth in citizen science and introducing them to STEM careers.

We need to not only invite diversity but ensure it is a business driver. We cannot achieve our mission at USFS without a safe, respectful workplace that represents the diversity that we serve.
