Students in Dr. Sue Margulis’ conservation biology course (BIO 322) hosted their annual poster session in Science Hall on Thursday, May 3. It was a great success! Visitors learned about the dangers of plastic straws and some good alternatives, search engines that help plant trees, and the benefits of community gardens. The students did a fantastic job on the final day of the semester!
