My name is Michelle Bolek. I'm doing some outreach for the University of
Michigan's Life Sciences, Values, and Society Program. We have a couple of
announcements that I think would be of interest to the enviro-mich list.
Could you pass these along to the list and anywhere else you think might
be appropriate? Thanks!
