Summer is upon us, and we have many opportunities on the horizon. But before we dive in, be sure to check out USF faculty Phillip Ross’s innovative work with mushroom materials as a means to replace plastic.
Net Impacters Winsy Wong and Jamil Adas enjoy a lovely foggy Sunday stroll amidst some Monterey Cypress on the Tree Tour of Land’s End, hosted by the Friends of the Urban Forest.
Tomorrow morning I will be joining the SF Surfrider Foundation for a clean up at Ocean Beach. This is a great way to steward the beautiful beaches that we are lucky enough to have and feel awesome on a Sunday morning. Food and drinks afterward at the Beach Chalet. I can provide rides for anybody in the middle of the city on westward. Contact if interested. Event details:
“As part of the 99th Annual Meeting of the Ecological Society of America ( August 10-15, 2014) several universities are working with ESA along with local institutions and agencies to coordinate a large land planning demonstration project that celebrates the American River Parkway running through downtown Sacramento, providing a lasting example of how ecology, urban planning, floodplain management, and conservation work together to increase urban resilience and human well-being. We would like to invite your students or recent graduates to participate in this exciting demonstration project. In particular, we are currently accepting applicants for Student Research Fellows. This is a paid opportunity and the deadline to apply is June 17th. ”
