Join us for a special lecture by Bern Sweeney, Ph.D., celebrating Ruth Patrick, Ph.D., and her groundbreaking study of the Conestoga River. Dr. Patrick and a team of scientists sampled 152 sites along the Conestoga in 1948. This was the first time a stream was studied so extensively, and it helped shape how we study streams and rivers today. 2024 marks the 75th anniversary of the study’s publication in 1949.
