Ideas and education

2020 Rich Earth Institute Virtual Summit - Reclaiming Urine as a Resource (Online): Join us to discuss the future of urine diversion and its re-use as a fertilizer!

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Nancy G. Love, Borchardt and Glysson Collegiate Prof. of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the U. of Michigan and adjunct Professor at the Institute of Biotechnology at Addis Ababa U. In collaboration with students, she works at the interface of water, infrastructure, public health in domestic/global settings. As Principal Investigator of the National Science Foundation's INFEWS project: Advancing Technologies and Improving Communication of Urine­-Derived Fertilizers for Food Production within a Risk­ Based Framework, she'll discuss this project and her vision for the future of urine diversion and reuse. Start 9/15, 2 p.m. This year, we bring our conference online. We hope this will enable a global audience to participate as we exchange ideas for the future of urine diversion.

Southeastern Vermont Audubon Society (via Zoom): Audrey Boraski: "The not so dismal birds: My year working with Red-Cockaded Woodpeckers at the Great Dismal Swamp National Wildlife Refuge." Growing up in the Northeast, the dense forests and geographical features fostered Audrey's love for nature and sparked her curiosity about the critters around her. Wanting to learn more about the living world, she carried her curiosity through adulthood by earning a B.S. in Biology and finishing an M.S. in Conservation Biology. Audrey has worked, interned, volunteered at wildlife/conservation/environmental organizations around the country. Some of her most memorable work took place within the insect-packed interior of the Great Dismal Swamp in Southeastern, VA. Here she wore the hat of Biology Intern working on the Red Cockaded Woodpecker (Dryobates borealis) reintroduction effort. On weekends she volunteered on ornithological activities - FeederWatch and the Breeding Bird Atlas, assisting at banding stations, building Piping Plover exclusion fencing. 7 p.m. http://southeasternvtas.blogspot.com/p/monthly-meetings.html.
