McKinley Nevins is one of the students at the University of Puget Sound doing summer research supported by the Murdock Trust’s College Science Research Program, designed to strengthen institutions’ faculty and undergraduate student research efforts in the natural sciences.

Check out this blog post she wrote about her experience working in the Hoh Rainforest on the Olympic Peninsula.

“I know that this work is what I want to do for the rest of my life. If not in the canopy of a tree, then maybe under the ocean, or on a small island somewhere just as green.”
