Gary Wagenbach, Winifred and Atherton Bean Professor of Biology, Science, Technology, and Society, Emeritus, will update us on Carleton’s approach to addressing energy issues, as well as its environmental studies program, Environmental Advisory Committee, the President’s Climate Commitment, and campus “sustainability” efforts.  Gary taught biology and environmental studies at Carleton for 39 years.  He is a leader in off-campus studies, directing ecology-oriented programs in Bermuda, California, New Zealand, Australia, and Tanzania.  His on-campus courses included biology of invertebrates, parasitism and symbiosis, and courses in the Environment and Technology Studies program.  He also recently directed Carleton’s concentration in Environment and Technology Studies until retiring in 2008.  His research interests include water quality issues and threatened species of freshwater mussels.

Please bring your favorite dish to share.  Beverages and paper products will be provided.
