    Conversations in the Disciplines: Depolarizing the Environment.
    9:00 am - 5:00 pm. SUNY-ESF Campus, Gateway Center. From land use conflict to climate change to hydrofracking to a host of other issues, why are environmental issues so polarizing? Is it political opportunism? Is it scientific ignorance? Is it an academic monoculture, insulated from the realities of the world? What avenues, if any, exist for constructive engagement across political divides? What can we do as academics to promote constructive discussion at the difficult interface of environment, politics, culture and science? Join us at SUNY-ESF for a thought-provoking Conversations in the Disciplines on the topic "Depolarizing the Environment." We will explore how the science of the environment can be better engaged with the political and social realms we inhabit, and how to foster a culture of intellectual openness at the difficult interface of environment, politics, culture and science.

    Speaker: Boston Schoolyard Initiative
    12:45 pm - 1:45 pm. Baker 146. Guest speaker Kristin Metz was the Director of Education for the Boston Schoolyard Initiative (BSI) from 2000 to 2013. The BSI (http://www.schoolyards.org/) sparked two decades of collaboration across Boston, transforming asphalt schoolyards of 88 elementary schools into centers for community, recreation, and learning. The multi-stakeholder partnership helped Boston Public Schools incorporate outdoor teaching as a routine practice; and influenced science (STEM) teaching on a national level. Kristin Metz is now an Education Consultant helping schools and districts build the capacity to support outdoor teaching and learning. (This event is sponsored by ESF's Graduate Student Association (GSA), and co-hosted with ESF's Outreach Office and the ESF Office of Energy & Sustainability).

    Commercial SPARE PV Installation Training
    8:00 am - 5:00 pm. Gateway Center, Room 240. In this class, participants will cover the issues associated with larger commercial PV installations which typically have three-phase electrical systems. Weight and wind loading play a major part in the design of large commercial installations, as most commercial buildings have expansive, flat roofs. The class will also look at issues for large, ground-mounted systems and review interconnection issues such as the necessary size of the local service, when a new transformer would be needed, when an entire substation would be needed and when the local utility might need the plant to provide reactive power (VAR support). The economics of these larger systems will also be reviewed. NABCEP requires that a "minimum of 40 of the 58 prescribed hours for certification must cover advanced solar PV installation and design principles and practices addressed in the NABCEP PV Installer Job Task Analysis". This class meets section 3.5.C.III as it is taught by an ISPQ certified instructor. Participants should have taken the Basic SPARE course or have similar knowledge of PV basics. Participants should have a calculator and the skills to operate it.

    NYFOA Symposium: The Future of New York Forests at Risk- Working Toward a Comprehensive Solution
    9:00 am - 4:00 pm. ESF Gateway Center. Forests cover 63% of New York State's land area and provide critical environmental, economic and quality-of-life benefits to society. Most of our current forests are entering the final third of their natural life cycles but, in many parts of the state, are not regenerating the desirable tree species and native understory vegetation that will serve the needs of citizens, wildlife or the forest products industry in the future. Participants and speakers, through discussion and interaction, will assess the capacity of current knowledge, techniques and policies to assure the regeneration of native New York forests. This symposium is presented by the New York Forest Owners Association and co-sponsored by: Audubon New York, Catskill Forest Association, Cornell University College of Agriculture & Life Sciences, New York Department of Environmental Conservation, New York Farm Bureau, SUNY College of Environmental Science & Forestry, and The Nature Conservancy. Who Should Attend? Any business associated with the forest products industry, environmental organizations, land trusts, maple syrup producers, consulting foresters, farmers whose agricultural interests are impacted by deer, those who value healthy & diverse woodlands as bird and wildlife habitat, organizations interested in forest recreation, including hunting, businesses dependent on tourism, state, county and municipal park authorities, state legislators and the media.
