Watershed Moments Community Learning Series
Learning lasts a lifetime.
As part of its commitment to public education, the Appalachian Laboratory of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Sciences (UMCES-AL) offers free community presentations and events through its Watershed Moments Community Learning Series.
From establishing the importance of wetlands to advancing science through the first-ever use of radiocarbon dating, our national parks have been home to a number of landmark scientific studies.
In this virtual Watershed Moments Community Learning event, Dr. Tim Watkins, Science Access and Engagement Coordinator with the National Park Service, will share stories of the notable research that has taken place in the parks and provide details of the ongoing Parks in Science History project, a collaborative initiative that has engaged graduate students from American University and institutions in the University System of Maryland to write articles and produce films about these notable studies and the parks in which they took place.
Join us on Zoom on Thursday, November 30, at 6:30pm to learn more about the role our public lands have played in ongoing scientific discovery. Register using the link below to receive the event's Zoom access information. Contact Rhonda Schwinabart at 301-689-7102 with any event-related questions.
