Green Roof Technology subject of colloquia

Dr. David Sanford, Associate Professor of Horticulture, discuss green roof technology in his upcoming talk "The Greening of America One Roof at a Time" on Friday, March 20, from 1:00-2:30 p.m. in room 123 of the Luerssen Building. This presentation is free and open to the public and light refreshments will be served.

Given the new "climate" in Washington and the U.S. Department of Energy's focus on energy conservation and diversification, Sanford's talk on green technology is timely.

In addition to Sanford's research in green roof technology, he works on the evaluation of both woody and herbaceous plants species for their adaptability and use in southeastern Pennsylvania landscapes. He is also conducting research on improving the seed germination of native mid-western wildflower species.

The Division of Science Colloquia features Penn State Berks faculty who conduct research on a wide variety of topics. Topics are of broad and general interest, and are accessible to the non-expert. Students, faculty, and interested members of the Penn State Berks and surrounding community are welcome and encouraged attend. The next lecture will be held on Friday, April 17, 2009 from 1:00-2:30 p.m. in room 123 of the Luerssen Building.
