History of the Clinch River Environmental Studies Program
 



The Forest Resources Research & Education Center
Oak Ridge
Thursday, March 28, 2019
7 - 8 pm



The UT Arboretum Society will sponsor a talk by the Clinch River Environmental Studies Organization (CRESO) on Thursday, March 28 at the UT Arboretum Auditorium, 901 S. Illinois Avenue in Oak Ridge from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

After spending 12 summers transporting Junior high and high school students to remote places in the Southeastern United States to visit unique ecosystems, John Byrd and Fred Holtzclaw decided it was time to turn in their chauffeur hats and set-up a research facility in their own community of Anderson County, TN. In 1989, the Department of Energy partnered with Anderson County and Oak Ridge Schools to develop an education/field research program known as the Clinch River Environmental Studies Organization (CRESO). John will attempt to document the evolution of this 30-year program along with the upsides (and a few downsides) of student research and conservation efforts. John Byrd and Fred Holtzclaw are retired high school biology teachers.

This is a free program sponsored by the UT Arboretum Society and no advance registration is required. For more information contact: mcampani@utk.edu or 865-483-7277.
