World Wetlands Day Public Lecture and Poster SessionExport this event to calendar

Tuesday, February 2, 2016 — 4:30 PM EST

Dutch deltaWorld Wetlands Day marks the date of the adoption of the Convention on Wetlands on February 2nd 1971 in the Iranian city of Ramsar.

To celebrate World Wetlands Day the Ecohydrology Research Group invites you to join us for: 

  • a reception and poster session featuring research on wetlands and
  • a distinguished public lecture titled "Reclaiming, using, and protecting wetlands: how the Dutch created The Netherlands" by Professor Jos Verhoeven from Utrecht University in the Netherlands

The poster session will begin at 4:30pm in the atrium of the Centre for Environmental and Information Technology (EIT). There will be a monetary prize for best student poster! Registration to present a poster is now closed, but anyone interested in wetlands research is welcome to attend the reception and view the posters. The reception will have a cash bar and complimentary hors d'oeuvres. Poster titles are listed below. 

Open water paintingProfessor Verhoeven's lecture will be at 7pm in EIT 1015. Registration for attending in the lecture hall is sold out; however, a large-screen television will broadcast the talk beside the lecture hall (in the EIT atrium with the posters); and the talk will also be broadcast online
