Students Explore Biodiversity Conservation Efforts in Hartford

Trinity Professor Amber Pitt’s Fall 2017 “Global Perspectives in Biodiversity and Conservation” course went above and beyond to engage students in biodiversity and conservation efforts. 48 students partnered with greater Hartford nonprofits and organizations like Park Watershed, Friends of Pope Park, and Connecticut River Conservancy to apply lessons learned to local conservation actions. Projects included planting native vegetation, improving riparian water quality through river cleanups, creating rain gardens, and removing invasive plants. Thumbs up to all of these students for their hard work! Read the full story!
