Rainforest Project Dissertation Day

Posted on April 27, 2011 by Tim No Comments

Tomorrow morning the student’s who participated in this year’s Forman/Rara Avis rainforest project will be presenting the results of their work. I encourage everyone to follow along live via webstreaming. Twan Leenders provided instructions on his blog through the Connecticut Audubon Society. I’ve copied the information here. This is your chance to experience a little about what I’ve written and described. Please note all times are Eastern time zone.
