Thank you to all the science enthusiasts for attending the Brookdale Community College Environmental Club’s “Science Monday” meetings at Brookdale Community College (BCC).
The last meeting of the semester will be held on Monday, November 26th. and will feature noted nature and wildlife photographer Herb Segars, who specializes in marine subjects. Beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the Warner Student Life Center, Mr. Segars will describe some of the many photographs he has taken of the underappreciated aquatic world off the New Jersey coast.
The Brookdale Community College Environmental Club’s “Science Monday Presentations” are held on the fourth Monday of each month (except December and August). The free presentations, open to the public, are hosted by Brookdale Community College’s Environmental Club to encourage both BCC students and the Monmouth County Community to be informed and involved in county, statewide and national issues on the importance of strong environmental regulations and enforcement.
College students and members of the N.J. Friends of Clearwater and the Jersey Shore (Monmouth) Group of the Sierra Club are regular attendees at these meetings. At each meeting light refreshments are served at 6:00 p.m. and presentations start at 6:30pm.
The Environmental Club is appreciative of the Sierra Club and Clearwater for their support and help with arrangements of speakers for the Science Monday meetings. Future presentations beginning in January will include:
1) The role of watershed management and pollution control
2) Doug O’Malley, interim executive director of Environment New Jersey, will discuss his organization’s recent report on the deteriorating water quality in NJ.
3) Tony MacDonald, director of Monmouth University’s Urban Coast Institute, will discuss the problems that must be addressed to protect coastal and global ocean resources in the 21st Century
4). Sustainable farming/local produce movements
We look forward to welcoming community to the November 26 presentation. Any questions, please feel free to contact me at 732-857-5305.
