The Flathead Lake Aquatic Research Education program (FLARE) engages K-12 students and teachers in advancing their understanding of lakes and streams. Through hands-on investigations in their own backyard and engagement with world-leading aquatic scientists at FLBS, we hope to spark an interest in science among the region’s young people that may lead them to explore careers in science and conservation.
Field Trips and School Programs
Bring world-class aquatic ecology to K-12 students by participating in one of our fieldtrip programs at the Flathead Lake Biological Station or have one of our educators bring programs to your classroom.
K-12 curricula, activity guides, and other resources to support hands-on, inquiry-based investigations of the aquatic ecosystems and organisms around us. Subjects include Flathead Lake ecology, river ecology, the local water cycle, conservation genetics, big data, and more. Created by our education team in conjunction with FLBS scientists.
We provide opportunities for teachers to learn more about current science and techniques for engaging students in scientific inquiry during the summer and school year.
