Upcoming AWA Talks
March 1, 2022
Dear valued AWA members,
Please join us on the evening of Tuesday, March 15th, as we host the first AWA Talk of 2022. The presentation will feature Dr. R. Kelman Wieder from Villanova University speaking on the topic of: Alberta Peatlands – A Valued Resource Under Stress. A brief description of his presentation is included below:
Across northern Alberta, Canada, bogs experience periodic wildfire and, in the Fort McMurray region, are exposed to increasing stresses, including nitrogen deposition, related to oil sands development. Dr. R. Kelman Wieder, Director of the Wieder Peatland Ecosystem Ecology Lab at Villanova University, has been studying how these boreal peatlands respond to these stresses and recover following wildfires.
The talk will start at 5:00 PM Mountain Time, and will be hosted virtually over Zoom. Please click the following link to register for FREE:
