Challenges facing Appalachian Mountain ecosystems topic of symposum
The devastating effects of acid rain, as well as other challenges facing the Appalachian Mountain stream ecosystem, will be discussed Saturday, Sept. 21 at James Madison University during a Mountain Stream Symposium.
The symposium, from 8:45 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Room 1007 of the Bioscience Building on JMU's campus east of Interstate 81, will feature presentations from 14 speakers with various backgrounds, including academia, government and nonprofit organizations. Each presentation will be 30 minutes, including time for questions.
The event is a project of the 4-VA consortium, which was organized in 2010 by the presidents of JMU, George Mason University, University of Virginia and Virginia Tech, in an effort to foster collaboration and to meet the needs of the Commonwealth identified by the Governor’s Higher Education Commission and his Jobs Commission.
The symposium is free and open to the public, but registration is required. To register and to get more information, go to http://www.jmu.edu/4-va/MSS2.shtml.
