Every fall, students in Restoration Ecology (HORT 4400) take on a real-world project in the local community, working together to gather data, analyze the issues and report their findings. (See To dredge or not to dredge: Class analyzes inlet options, Cornell Chronicle, Nov. 7, 2011.) You can find out what they discovered at:
