LEWISBURG, Pa. — Six Bucknell University faculty members will discuss a range of topics at the Environmental Snaptalk Symposium on Thursday, March 10, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. in the Traditional Reading Room of the Bertrand Library.
"These six professors will speak for eight minutes each on a variety of environmental and sustainability perspectives and research," said Jess Scott, a 2008 Bucknell graduate and an intern with the Bucknell University Environmental Center. The event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited.

"These snaptalks are part of the Environmental Center's goal of building connections between faculty and community members with similar interests, fostering the development of cross-disciplinary research, teaching and activity, and broadening our understanding of nature and the environment," Scott said.
