I will probably be hosting or co-hosting a panel on environmental justice topics at the conference in May 2009. This could be an opportunity for your topic team to present your research from this course (these presentations look great on resumes and transfer applications).

For information and application procedures go to:

Please consider sharing your work there, and perhaps also presenting sometime during Earth Week events at Cabrillo (April 20th -25th) . Let me know if you’re interested in these opportunities.
