Nine undergraduate and three graduate students attended the Science Atlantic Environment Conference (SAEC) this past weekend at St Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia (March 8-10) with Dr. O’Driscoll. Sara Stewart won the 2nd place undergraduate presentation award and Sara Adams the 2nd place graduate presentation award. Students experienced great talks by their peers, several events related to the proposed boat harbour remediation (lecture, field trip, and a panel discussion), and enjoyed a banquet with the invited speaker (Jacquelyn Stevens) overviewing her career path from geology to environmental law. We are extremely proud of this great group of student researchers.
