On the same day,  we are teaming up with the Cairn Project, a nonprofit start-up that supports outdoor opportunities for young women through a community-funded grant program. Our shared goal is to support experiential science learning opportunities for rising cohort of young women scientists across the country. Join us by chipping in to support programs empowering our next generation of curious minds, researchers, and environmental stewards. Science and adventure for all!
