EREN Cross-College Collaboration in Action

July 5, 2015. Ohio Wesleyan University students working on the EREN Emerald Ash Borer project visit with one of the Lead Scientists for EREN’s Emerald Ash Borer Project: Dr. Ben Dolan, at the University of Findlay in Findlay, OH. We discussed differences in forest composition between Ohio Wesleyan’s and University of Findlay’s plots and students got to experience how different sites can be across the Ohio landscape. Thank you to Ben and his co-Lead Scientist, Jason Kilgore, for giving EREN a great example to follow on cross-site collaboration!
