Keep up with Master of Environmental Horticulture projects:
a web resource update from Tracy Mehlin

Students pursuing Master of Environmental Horticulture degrees produce reports documenting their restoration and ecological engineering projects. The completed reports and report summaries are now accessible on the University of Washington Botanic Gardens website as Technical Bulletins. Recent reports examine the verification process for urban forest restoration efforts by the Green Seattle Partnership and nearshore restoration monitoring at Thatcher Bay in the San Juan Islands.

Don't miss this opportunity to share your latest projects and research results with the general public. All students in the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences at the University of Washington are invited to create a 14x14-inch mini-poster in .pdf format to display at the Miller Library May 12 though June 9.

Just send us the electronic version, and we'll cover the printing and mounting costs. Send your poster to us (hortlib@uw.edu) by May 1 to participate. We hope you'll also join us for the informal meet-and-greet Friday, May 12, from 5 to 7 pm.
