Upcoming Event: 2012 Vebrugge Environmental Center Symposium

The first annual Vebrugge Environmental Center Symposium will be held at the Scotia House, right next to the VEC, on Saturday, Sept. 29, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The meeting will share with stakeholders and potential collaborators the vision of the property, our progress toward that vision to date and the kinds of collaborations we are hoping to facilitate with the development of the VEC. The meeting will involve the discussion of research activities and collaborations that might take place at the VEC, including everything from hard sciences to social sciences and cultural anthropology. The results of these discussions will be used to inform a proposal to the National Science Foundation for a planning grant to establish the VEC as a research station. Breakout groups will discuss the future of research, education, and conservation collaborations at the VEC.

For more information, or to enroll in the symposium, please contact Executive Assistant to the Provost Gretchen Cleveland at or 509.777.3702. We hope to see you there!
