ABLE, the Academic Biology Learning Environment, welcomed students in introductory biology courses to its Open House on September 15. Over 50 students along with BAHS faculty members Drs. Amin, Hess, Nolt, Schwindinger, and Surmacz, graduate asaistant John Poling, Dean Aronstam, and Assistant Dean Dr, Venditti, were on hand to kick off the new academic year. at Columbia Residence Hall. Students had the opportunity to view ABLE resources and facilities, meet faculty and tutors, learn about ABLE workshops and study sessions, and of course have some snacks. Dr. Hess's human body cookies were a big hit! Students also received prizes that ranged from school supplies to miniature skeletons. Thanks to all who attended. Please take advantage of the opportunities available at ABLE!

Bloomsburg University, along with the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Susquehanna University and the Chesapeake Bay Foundation are partners in a three year initiative to restore and conserve the Susquehanna River Watershed. This project of the Chesapeake Conservancy was funded by a grant from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundatioin.This collaborative project pilots a new approach called precision conservation that aims to use new technologies and data sets to improve water quality by reducing sediment and nutrient pollution from non-point sources. .Dr. Steven Rier and his students will directly evaluate the effectiveness of the precision conservation approach by determining if restoration efforts actually reduce nutrient and sediment loads and restore key ecosystem functions. Bloomsburg University will receive $115,000 to complete this work. Congratulations to Dr. Rier. We look forward to learning the results of your research on the precision conservation approach.
Here are some scenes from Dr. Klinger's Marine Invertebrates class that was held at the Chincoteague Bay Field Station in Wallops Island, VA this summer. Looks like fun!

The 2016-2017 academic year is underway! Welcome to all BAHS students, faculty and staff. In addition to our returning students, 191 new freshmen and transfer students have joined BAHS this semester. We are delighted to have you aboard and are looking forward to working with you this academic year. The first week was a busy one with students heading out to Kocher Park in Ecology lab with Dr. Williams and into the laboratory for some crime solving in Cell Biology with Dr. Brubaker. We wish you all a successful and rewarding academic year!
