Hope you will join us on November 28th at 12:00 pm in the CBU Library Student Lounge for the second event in our series “Inspired by Nature” featuring the geological adventures of Dr. Deanne van Rooyen, Associate Professor of Geology, and co-founder of the Bachelor of Arts and Science in Environment (BASE) degree program at CBU.

Bring your lunch and learn why geology is so vital to the sustainability of human societies. What are the contributions of geological science towards the sustainability movement? Why are they so poorly known and undervalued? Dr. Van Rooyen will talk about her research and field work in northern Canada, with an emphasis on showcasing some of the extraordinary landscapes and communities that inspire and sustain her geological research.
