On day 5 of “Washington College Week” on The Academic Minute, Jennie Carr, Assistant Professor of Biology, describes her work at the College’s River and Field Campus studying the nesting and feeding behavior of field sparrows.

Join the Center for Environment & Society (CES) and the Eastern Shore Food Lab (ESFL) for an evening with Hank Shaw. Hank will be selling his new book, Pheasant, Quail, Cottontail at a discounted price and will also be available to answer questions about other small game. This event is for those who are so inclined to connect with nature to procure their own food, or for those who like to try new and exciting types of food. At CES and ESFL we believe connecting with nature and learning to eat like humans again is not something to be taken lightly.
