Some of the environmental initiatives currently underway on campus are featured in a news report on CN8's  "Art Fennell Reports."  Included are horticulturalist Jeff Jabco, who gives a tour of Alice Paul Hall's green roof and the rainwater collection system used at the LEED-certified Science Center, and engineering major Lauren Goodfriend '08 (left), who shows off the system she designed to create her solar-powered dorm room.   Also appearing is religion professor Mark Wallace, who argues that a wide range of resources is needed to address the current "environmental crisis." Watch the report here.
