Saturday October 1, 11-2 pm: Jefferson School Science Fair We need five ENVR students to run our "make a bird feeder" and "make a bee nest box" booths at the Jefferson School fair. Help k-8 students and their parents make bird feeders out of bagels or pine cones and/or help them drill boring bee nest holes for their bee boxes. The fair is a lot of fun, it's great working with the little kids, and it'll be great to have an SU ENVR presence there. Please email Mr Nelson @ wanelson@salisbury.edu if you can help out.

Saturday October 8, 10 am - 5 pm Vienna, MD Nanticoke Jamboree (theme: Games. see https://nanticokeriverjamboree.com/about/) Partake in hands-on fun with a variety of sporting and leisure activities that American Indians, African American men and women and English Colonists engaged in during three centuries in America. Through living history presentations the Jamboree will show you how our fore-bearers took time out from their hard-working days to have moments of relaxation, competition, skill-building, and enjoyment. Try your hand at lacrosse, hoops, board games, cards, baseball, kites and puppets! (No vans available: you'll need to provide your own transportation.)

Wednesday October 12, 5:30 pm Henson 243 Hybrid Ecologies & Relational Ontologies: Toward a Hopeful Environmentalism. Christian Hunold, Drexel University Dept of Politics, discusses the proliferation of hybrid ecologies as one of the defining social-ecological features of this ear.
