2015 Annual Meeting -- Student Travel Award

Hi all!

We had 23 student participants from SUNY-ESF, SUNY Oneonta, Wells College, SUNY Morrisville and Cornell University (see attached agenda). The absolutely annoying cold and rain chased about 10 of our registrants away!  We had to abbreviate some of our planned instruction due to the uncomfortable weather conditions.  However, the program was very well received overall, and I think the evaluations and photos reflect that.
