VIRTUAL JOB SHADOW
Welcome to your first day on the job! Watch this video to see what a day in the life of a Botanist is like.
You may be familiar with the fact that many animals are endangered, but so are plants! As a future botanist, it’s time to take action! Here’s what to do:
- Use a search engine to find endangered plants in your state.
- Pick your favorite endangered plant.
- Create a ‘Most Wanted’ poster for this plant to raise awareness of why it is so important to protect this plant, and what people can do to help.
- Optional: Share your Most Wanted poster in the Student Showcase to build your resume!
