Visiting Scholar Seminar Series
Experts come to the Appalachian Laboratory from across the country to speak as part of the Visiting Scholar Seminar Series. Guests can enjoy a presentation and question-and-answer session at these free events. Seminars are held at 3:30 p.m. on Thursdays in Room 109 of the UMCES Appalachian Laboratory, 301 Braddock Road, in Frostburg, unless otherwise specified. All sessions are open to the public.
Watershed Moments Community Learning Series
Learning doesn’t stop when you leave school or exit the workforce; learning lasts a lifetime. It’s with that belief in mind that the Appalachian Laboratory created the Watershed Moments Community Learning Series. Learn about the land, sea, and air around us from regionally and nationally known experts and artists. By taking a multidisciplinary approach to the series, the Lab offers adult learners the opportunity to engage their right and left brains as they learn more about the pressing environmental issues of our day, from endangered species to climate change, from water pollutants to improvements in air quality. These events are free and open to the public.
Johnson Environmental Education Award
Citizens Restoring American Chestnuts
Each year, Appalachian Laboratory scientists offer a limited number of undergraduate students the opportunity to engage in research activities through internships with their various research projects. To date, students have assisted in measuring the mecury levels found in corn and other local produce and in identifying the source of nitrate found at field sites following major storm events. In addition to project-related activities, students also have the opportunity to read and discuss journal articles related to the field of study with their intersnship supervisors and graduate students and to participate in faculty seminars and other Laboratory-sponsored events during their internships.
