Avondale, Pa. – Are environmental laws protecting our streams and rivers?

Entomologist John K. Jackson, Ph.D., of Stroud Water Research Center will explore that question on the evening of Wed., July 18, 2012.

His lecture is the second in the monthly Stroud Seminar Series, hosted by the Center, and designed to address global, national, and local issues related to water.

Also on display on July 18th is an art exhibit by Vicki Vinton titled “Drill What Lies Beneath, an Artist’s Interpretation of the Marcellus Shale Gas Extraction Process.” This is the last public viewing of the entire collection.

All lectures are free and open to the public, are appropriate for ages 12 and older, and will be held in the Stroud Meetinghouse. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. for tours and the art exhibit; lectures start promptly at 7 p.m. A wine and cheese reception will precede the lecture.

More upcoming lectures include:

  • “How emerging tools and approaches enable scientists to confront major environmental challenges that threaten our world.” Led by the Center’s Organic Geochemist Anthony K. Aufdenkampe, Ph.D. on Wed., August 29.
  • “Connecting with nature in a Digital Age.” Led by Patricia Zaradic, Ph.D., director of the Red Rock Institute on Wed., September 19.
