Join us on Thursday, 24 March 2016, for a presentation on Professor Celia Evans’ International Winter Ecology class – a new Paul Smith's College course that was offered over 17 days during the college’s winter break.

The lecture will cover the participants' experiences in Russia, as well as their ongoing research. Cost of the lecture: $5 per person. Free for Friends of the VIC. The Arm Chair Lecture series is presented every other Thursday throughout the winter. Supported by the Friends of the VIC.  

Celia Evans is Professor of Ecology at Paul Smith's College. She received her doctorate in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology from Dartmouth in 1999 and joined the PSC faculty in 2001. Her ecological research has included beech bark disease impacts on forest structure, and salamanders as indicators of ecosystems function. She was awarded a Fulbright teaching and research fellowship in 2012 and spent three months in Russia's Altai area, conducting research on rural elementary school students’ cultural relationship to place. She is also an accomplished musician and has released four albums of original acoustic folk. She is now finishing up a fifth album – Infusion – featuring music born out of her Russian trips.
