The WA Section of AEG is inviting students and faculty interested in environmental science
and geology to our 2017 Student Night. This is an informal evening that will allow attendees
to network with earth science students and faculty from other universities and colleges, as
well as interact with career professionals working in these fields.
We are soliciting students (undergraduate and graduate) to present a poster summarizing their
research or class work. We will have a space available in the Best Western’s meeting room
for students to set-up and host a poster (up to 15 posters). The poster session will run during
the Social Hour (5:30–6:30). Everyone is encouraged to come and support the student
