The Gray Lab presenting posters on fish responses to environmental change, from Lake Erie to Uganda at the Ohio Chapter AFS! Congratulations to Suzanne for winning the Ohio chapter president-elect position for the next year!
Our very own undergraduate, Harrison Fried, presented his Honors thesis proposal, “How do algal and sedimentary turbidities affect the long-term physiology of Emerald Shiners in Lake Erie?” Great job Harrison! Outstanding undergraduate students in the School of Environment and Natural Resources at OSU are able to join our Honors program which allows students to complete an independent research project and defend a thesis which helps to prepare them for graduate studies!
This summer we held a workshop about the importance of water quality and water quality education for the teachers at St. Hildegard primary school where we engage students and teach them about water quality issues through our program called The Water Project. The teachers had so much fun and asked really great questions!
We have some really exciting work going on in the western basin of Lake Erie and Ohio Sea Grant agrees! Check out the link below for the article which features our own Dr. Suzanne Gray and Chelsey Nieman (PhD student).
Come see our first two honors defense presentations next week! These event are open to the public so anyone can come watch!
