Cofrin Student Research Symposium is biggest ever
This year’s Cofrin Student Research Symposium will be held from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday (March 1) in Phoenix Room B of the University Union on the UW-Green Bay campus. Open to all, the symposium provides a forum for student researchers who have conducted studies on UW-Green Bay natural areas and elsewhere during 2010-11, with funding from the Cofrin Arboretum Student Research Endowment, the Pt. au Sable Research Endowment, and the Michael Draney and Vicki Medland Land Trust Research Award. This year’s schedule of presentations includes contributions by 14 students, the largest number supported in a single year since the start of the program in 1989. During the introduction, Brian Zaron, winner of the 2011 Paul and Thea Sager Scholarship in Memory of Edward W. Weidner, will be recognized for his excellence in undergraduate science writing. We’ll have a link to presenters and topics in our next issue.
