Professor Presents at Citizen Science Association Conference
Assistant Professor Anne Toomey, PhD, and Tanasia Swift, the Community Reefs Regional Manager at Billion Oyster Project, presented a talk together at the Citizen Science Association Conference in Raleigh, NC. Their talk discussed the social-cultural dynamics of two Brooklyn communities – Coney Island and Canarsie – and the role of community science in bringing New Yorkers closer to their waterfront.
Environmental Studies student Brooklyn Flick ’24 shares her experience interning at Sustainable Westchester. “As I move forward in my college career, I have begun to desire a way to put into practice what I have been learning in my classes. Therefore, when the opportunity to work with a company called “Sustainable Westchester” in their Zero Waste division opened up, I knew it sounded exactly right; or Recycle Right as I was later told.”
The Environmental Studies and Science department is hosting a Fall Speaker Series on Environmental Science and Policy. Our kick-off event on September 29 is a virtual webinar by Dr. Susanne Moser about science-practice interaction and communication on climate change resilience.
