Bloomsburg University is home to one of the largest and most modern science buildings in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Here, science isn't confined to the classroom or even the lab.
As a student you'll find opportunities for technology internships, health care clinical experiences or science research, including undergraduate research opportunities. These experiences will give you an edge in your career, and along the way you'll be able to take pride in making a difference — for the environment or for your community.
An ecosystem management class taught by Amber Pitt, assistant professor of biological and allied health sciences, is creating an ecosystem management plan to help oversee a new property recently acquired and integrated into Kocher Park. Pitt’s students have been working with the Columbia County Conservation District, which manages Kocher Park, to create the plan.
Pitt describes an ecosystem management plan as a business plan for a property, mapping out the goals for its management and a specific strategy to achieve those goals. “Creating an ecosystem management plan allows for the creation of well-thought out goals and actions so that the actual management of the ecosystem can be as effective and efficient as possible,” says Pitt.
