ACRC Brown Bag Seminar

Series has ended for the summer - check back in the fall!



ACRC Spring Semester Brown Bag Lecture Series

The Alaska Coastal Rainforest Center is hosting a Brown Bag Lunchtime Lecture series during the spring semester. Talks will be on Wednesdays from noon—1pm at the Forestry Sciences Lab adjacent to the UAS Juneau campus. The lunchtime speaker series is meant to be an informal avenue for graduate students, faculty, and professionals to present new and existing research and scholarship, brainstorm ideas, and have the opportunity to receive feedback in an informal setting.  We invite all interested persons to join us to learn about the exciting research projects and collaborations that are happening in Southeast Alaska.

2015 is the International Year of Soils.  This finite natural resource is important for food security and the ecosystem.  One Wednesday each month will focus on soils science to help raise awareness and promote the sustainability of our limited soil resources.
