Last events of the semester

Here at AEES, we have two events planned to help you take your mind off those end-of-semester troubles:

 

Last AEES meeting of the year:

Thursday, April 24, 11-12, Mason Room 2117. Free lunch!

We have a GREAT speaker lined up for this week. His name is Alex Levy and he is a Senior Ecologist for Arcadis. He has a background in landscape architecture and lots of experience with streams and aquatic ecosystems, and in working with engineered solutions for terrestrial and aquatic habitat connectivity. So please, come out, take a break from studying to refresh your brain and eat some free lunch!

 

AEES Spring Picnic

Wednesday, 4-6pm Biotech (Ford ES&T) Quad. Free dinner!

Another chance for free food and some stress relief. Please come by to spend some time with your favorite professors and friends, and enjoy free dinner on us. Bring a frisbee, soccer ball, or hacky sack if you have one! Hope to see you there!

It’s a busy week with AEES

We have lots of exciting events coming up this week and we’d love to see you at all of them.
