The Biology Department, the Great Lakes Center, and the graduate Great Lakes Ecosystem Science (GLES) programs are collaborating to present a weekly seminar this semester. Each seminar will be held in the Bulger Communication Center, Room W, from 4:00 to 5:15 p.m.
“We invite everyone from the campus community to attend,” said Kelly Frothingham, coordinator of the GLES programs and chair of the Geography and Planning Department. “This semester, the series presents topics that reflect the ongoing work in each department.”
An introduction to the series was held on August 28 and Michael Voorhees, of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Buffalo Office), presented on the Scajaquada Creek Shoreline Buffer and Wetland Restoration Project on September 11.
