Beth Pallo (Environmental Science ’06 with Chemistry concentration) and Akiko Fillinger (Assistant Professor of Chemistry) presented their poster on an interdisciplinary project titled, “Multi-faced Evaluation of Sustainable Landscaping on a College Campus” at the 2nd International Conference on Environmental Science and Technology at Houston, TX, on August 19-22, 2006. This project aims to increase sustainability on our College’s landscaping practice by moving from tradition mono-crop lawns to a mixture that includes grasslands and wildflowers. (http://ic017040.ithaca.edu/~cns/projects.html) We will monitor soil chemistry, biodiversity, economics of lawn vs. non-lawn landscaping, and attitudes of the college community. Beth’s poster presentation was well received by many environmental scientists and engineers from all over the world.
