The Ecological Engineering Student Society will be meeting at 6PM on Wednesday, February 11th in Gilmore 234.
This week we'll be hosting a presentation by policy analyst Sean McGuire. Sean worked as the Director of Sustainability Policies for the Maryland Department of Natural Resources for over 7 years before moving to Oregon. He now works in Salem and will share with us information on policies concerning water, land, and energy in our area. This is a great opportunity to learn about policy, a sustainable approach on policy and how we can ensure our policies are doing as intended.
We hope you'll join us for this interesting presentation! In addition, we'll see who's interested in the field trip with Professor Desiree Tullos and Jason Kelley to A2R farms, ~ 20 minutes south of Corvallis. The field trip will involve talking with the farm manager about their water use, crop management and sustainable farming, and center pivot systems. We will also walk down to Muddy Creek to talk about the unique and somewhat controversial water transfer that is operating there. We will leave from Motor Pool at 11:15am and return by 2pm.
We'll talk a little more about Mothers Day preparations, the status of the Rainwater Collection Project, and other field trip opportunities!
Hope to see you Wednesday!
Your EESS Officers
We'll be meeting up in Gilmore 234 Wednesday Jan 28th to briefly organize into teams.
Group 1 will work with Carson Smith on the rainwater collection project.
Group 2 will work with Katie Sturdevant and I on replanting/cleaning our new plants in the greenhouse.
Group 3 will work with Brandee, and Erica Rodriguez on organizing/planning the winter and spring term field trips.
Know some of you have midterms and cannot make it, don't sweat it, will post important info to the website and facebook. On the other hand, you could use this as a break from studying and help out;)
Hope to see ya there,
EESS | President
More to be discussed as the term marches on!
On the side of fundraising I'd like to grow plants suitable for mother's day hanging baskets, this will require us to work with another group on campus to sell them.
I would also like to set up a crew of folks to design a rainwater collection system for the greenhouse. This design would also include a detailed grant proposal for the Sustainability Center, due by the end of fall term 2015.
This Winter the EESS will take a field trip to the Evergreen Wetland Mitigation Bank and possibly another to the Drift Creek Wilderness for a general nature hike.
EESSHope everyone is having a good start to Winter term, the days will be growing longer and I for one will become more productive as this occurs.
