Cathy Jachowski and Jennifer Wagner, graduate students in the Hopkins Lab and Ph.D. Fellows in the Interfaces of Global Change Program, recently organized and hosted a science outreach day at the SEEDS Nature Center* in Blacksburg, VA. The day of outdoor activities was titled “Passport to Discovery: a hands-on journey through the world of biological science and nature for children of all ages.”
Volunteers participating in this event included other Interfaces of Global Change fellows, graduate and undergraduate students from the Hopkins and Belden labs, NRV Master Naturalists, and staff members from the SEEDS Nature Center. More than 200 participants were in attendance, including many local families and visitors who were in Blacksburg for the weekend. The day was a big success!
