JBNHS GENERAL MEETING
November 16, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
At the Hudson River Maritime Museum Riverport Boat School meeting room. Program: Dr. Emma J. Rosi, Aquatic Biologist, Cary Institute for Ecosystem Studies, will present her program “Our Rivers on Drugs: PPCPs as agents of ecological change in aquatic systems”. Pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs) are ubiquitous in surface waters and their occurrence will likely continue in the future. Dr. Rosi’s research focuses on how human activities affect aquatic life and water quality in diverse ecosystems around the world. She is particularly interested in novel and emerging contaminants such as pharmaceuticals, and also studies the effects of nutrient enrichment. She serves on the Ecological Processes and Effects Committee of the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Science Advisory Board.
The field trips of JBNHS are oriented to nature study. They are free and open to the public. We do, however, sometimes visit sites that charge admission fees, which are the responsibility of the participants. Children are very welcome on field trips, but pets are not. Although there is a brief courtesy waiting period for latecomers, the meeting times are important: please arrive in time to sign up with the leader.
