Interested in Biology and Marine Science, but missed the Club Fair? It’s not too late to join!
Although many seniors in the clubs have graduated this past semester, the club still has many returning members, such as Lian Mlodzienski, the President of the Biology Club.
Judging by the number of students surrounding the table throughout the day, there was much interest from potential new members.
The Biology Club aims to inspire students to understand wildlife, especially the surrounding Pocono area.
The club, which works closely with the Marine Science Club, goes on many outings to Aquariums and Zoos both in the area and around the northeastern coast.
Vice President of the Biology Club, Rebecca Carroll, said that anyone with an interest in animals would enjoy the trips the club takes.
Some trips in the past included Spring Break trips to Ga. and the Alternative Spring Break at the Chincoteague Bay Field Station in Va. This year will probably include another Alternative Spring Break in the Spring Semester with a trip to Virginia Beach.
Garrett Hysong, a junior Marine Biology major in the club, told me about last year’s Spring Break trip to Atlanta, Ga.
During the trip, the Marine Science club went to an aquarium in Ga., which was home to four Whale Sharks among other massive creatures that students may have never seen before.
This semester both clubs will be offering opportunities to do conservation work. The Biology Club will be going to Stony Acres to do some conservation work, camp, and have some fun on the ropes course. The Marine Science Club will be hosting beach clean up days.The first of these days will most likely take place in Sandy Hook N.J. on October 24 .
The clubs are currently planning the trips and events for next semester.
One of these trips will be a trip to Baltimore, Md. in November. Go to the club meetings to find out more information on the exact details of these trips.
The Marine Science Club is also planning an Alternative Fall Break to the Chinotieague Field Station. Here, they plan to work on restoration projects and team building.
Open to all majors, the Biology Club and the Marine Science Club meets every Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. respectively in Kurtz Lecture Hall, located in the Moore Biology building adjacent to SciTech.
