Augusta, Mich. — The public is invited to get to know local research at the W.K. Kellogg Biological Station’s annual Undergraduate Summer Symposium on August 1.

Undergraduates will be presenting the results of their summer research projects and professional experiences at KBS. These students have worked in a variety of capacities in our undergraduate summer programs – internships, part-time Undergraduate Research Apprenticeships (URA), and full-time Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU), mentored by KBS faculty, staff, and graduate students.

Look forward to seeing projects on these topics:

  • Plant biology
  • Conservation ecology
  • Agricultural sustainability

This event is free and open to the public, and will be held in the KBS Academic Building Auditorium, located at 3700 E. Gull Lake Dr., in Hickory Corners. Light refreshments will be provided starting at 3:30 p.m., and poster presentations will be offered from 4 – 5:30 p.m. To learn more, visit kbs.msu.edu, call 269-671-2171 or email kbssummer@kbs.msu.edu.
