Throughout the school year, scientists from Ecoss visit Sinagua Middle School to teach students about various topics in their research, such as freshwater ecosystems and decomposition. Once during the school year, the students from Sinagua Middle School visit Ecoss labs at Northern Arizona University.

The Center for Ecosystem Science and Society (Ecoss) at Northern Arizona University seeks to understand ecosystems and how and why they change. The vision of Ecoss is to understand ecosystem function and change from the cell to the globe and their implications for future Earth.
