Title
Thurs, January 28, 2016, 4 pm, 5 Illick Hall
Sponsored by the Department of Environmental and Forest Biology

Dr. Darrah is working on a two-year project to develop a decision support tool for the management of the federally threatened Atlantic Coast population of the Piping Plover. She has a broad range of interests and experiences in ornithology. She earned her M.S. and Ph.D. from the University of Arkansas, and moved to New York after a year and a half working as a postdoc at the University of Arizona where she participated in a number of different projects dealing with the effects of land use, drought, and invasive species management on western bird communities. Her interest in ornithology stems from a general passion for nature and travel.  In here free time, she enjoys training for triathlons, hiking, camping, reading, cooking, and spending time with my husband and dog.

Wednesday, March 9, 2016, 4:00 PM, Gateway A/B
Sponsored by the ESF Women's Caucus and the Graduate Student Association

Rochester Root, Inc. (ROOTS) is a 501(c)3 not-profit organization whose mission is: “To empower ROCHESTER ROOTS, INC. citizens and communities, starting with youth, to create agency for their own sustainable wellbeing.”
Our vision is for “Vibrant communities of diverse people with high performance brains who collaborate to create sustainable wellbeing.”

As Executive Director Jan has provided 22 years of service with Rochester Roots (ROOTS). As a volunteer Jan designed promotional materials (1991-1998), she served on the Board of Directors (1998-2004), and was hired as the Director in 2004. Jan developed the innovative Rochester Roots Urban Agriculture Program. Inspired by experiential teaching and learning methods, she integrated her interests in sustainable agriculture, art, healthy eating, and entrepreneurship into a project that serves the needs of urban dwellers living in poverty. 

Since 1991, ROOTS has been committed to improving community health and well-being through prevention and reduction of hunger. We address this strategically at three levels: (1) community food system research, (2) garden-based and food preparation-based education and youth enrichment, and (3) empowering youth as change agents for their families and the community. 

ROOTS develops the next generation of citizens who are participants in their community through their involvement in decision-making involving Sociological, Ecological and Technological Systems. ROOTS “Urban Sustainability Laboratory” (USL) implemented in July 2014 is focused on developing youth as leaders who work alongside businesses and university faculty and students to solve the “wicked problems" of sustainability facing them in the 21st century.
