Beginning in November 2006, SCPRF plans to host a poster session at the November Forum only; this will be a regular feature of the Nov. Forum, so participants can plan ahead. If you are interested, please see the guidelines below and direct inquiries to Lynne Miller.
The poster session is an excellent venue for Undergraduate and Master’s level students to present their research and gain experience in a friendly and low pressure context. The poster session will convene during the one hour afternoon coffee break.
Please note: poster content does not have to reflect the meeting topic; we will consider posters presenting information on a wide range of subject matter.
This poster session continues to be a great success and we would like very much to see it continue. If you are a student, or know of a student, who is ready to present, please submit names and proposed titles to
Lynne Miller firstname.lastname@example.org
Space will be limited, the earlier you respond the more likely we can include the poster.
Posters should be mounted on folding poster boards measuring 36″ X 48″ (when folded they measure 36″ X 24″) which can be purchased at most office supplies stores. General guidelines for how to put a poster together can be found at www.asp.org/education/howto_onPosters.html or at http://faculty.ucr.edu/~maryb/poster.htm
Animals in the Spotlight is an event hosted by Roots & Shoots CSUF. (Many PSA students are also members!)

The event will be held at Cal State Fullerton in room 110-H on March 6th at 6:30 p.m. There will be speakers from Friends of Coyote Hills as well as Hills for Everyone.
There will be opportunity drawings with great prizes!
