VCU Rice Rivers Center accepted into important network
November 12, 2014
Earlier this month, the Rice Rivers Center's application to join the Cooperative Ecosystem Study Unit (CESU) was accepted by a unanimous vote of its members. Based in Washington, D.C., the CESU is network of federal agencies and academic institutions working together to conduct research and restoration for the Chesapeake Bay watershed. With funding from CESU, VCU faculty will begin avian and herptofauna surveys of Fort A.P. Hill in early 2015. These baseline surveys will support future conservation activities by base personnel and will provide valuable field experiences for graduate and undergraduate students in Biology and Environmental Studies.
