Via Tom Whitlow:
Every fall, students in Restoration Ecology (HORT 4400) take on a pro bono consulting project for a local non-profit agency, working together to gather data, analyze the issues and report their findings.
This year, the class has been studying a salt spring near Montezuma, N.Y., with the intent of developing strategies for using the saline water to create an inland salt marsh.
This is a rare vegetation type in the Northeast, so it is interesting in its own right as well as posing challenges for restoration because there is virtually no precedent for this type of project.
The students will report their findings on Tuesday, December 3, 7 to 9 p.m. in 37 Plant Science.
The event is free and open to the public.
