Westminster College Professor and Biology Students Attend Wilson Ornithological Society Meeting, Present ResearchFriday, April 5, 2013
NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. - Dr. Kerri Cornell Duerr, assistant professor of biology, and three Westminster College senior biology students presented research at the 125th Wilson Ornithological Society annual meeting in Williamsburg, Va., March 7-10.
The following students participated at the meeting:
Colin Feeney is a son of Donald and Debra Feeney of Waterford and a graduate of Fort Le Boeuf High School.
Samantha Higgins is a daughter of Scott and Mary Beth Higgins of McMurray and a graduate of Peters Township High School.
Briana Valentino is a daughter of Lisa Valentino and Michael Valentino, Canton, Ohio, and a graduate of Glenoak High School. She attended the meeting, but did not present research.
James Ward is a son of Michael and Kathleen Ward of Washington and a graduate of Trinity High School.
The Wilson Ornithological Society, founded in 1888, is a world-wide organization of nearly 2,500 people who share a curiosity about birds. Named in honor of Alexander Wilson, the Father of American Ornithology, the Society publishes a peer-reviewed quarterly journal of ornithology, The Wilson Journal of Ornithology, and holds annual meetings. At this year's meeting nearly 90 students gave presentations.
"At the annual meetings, participants learn more about birds, present results of their research, and expand their professional network. Meetings provide a wonderful opportunity for students and established professionals to meet and discuss interesting topics, participate in forwarding the most recent advances in ornithological knowledge, and to travel to new birding locations," Duerr said. "Scientific papers presented at the meeting deal with current research on all aspects of bird biology, conservation, and systematics."

NEW WILMINGTON, Pa. - Is the word garden a noun or a verb? At the Westminster College Field Station it is both - a place and an activity. A place where plants are nurtured and an activity engaged in by folks who till the soil and benefit from the fruit of their labor.
When the concept of the Field Station was hatched 33 years ago in 1980, one of the points of justification in the proposal to Westminster's administration and trustees was "to provide space for members of the college [and] community to plant garden plots." Two years ago several leaders of the Bear Tree Connections, an environmental club for children, asked about cultivating and planting a plot near the Weather Station as a children's garden. Even ahead of this push for a garden, some college classes in biology and art were cultivating plants for study and research. These college and community ventures were the beginning of "our garden in which people of the soil can garden!"
