After 25 years working in industry and on medical education, human communication and psychology as a cognitive scientist, Dr Jean McKendree changed her career goals by taking an MSc in Environmental Science at the University of York, and postgraduate study at Loughborough University, specialising in the vegetation of upland peat bogs. She is now an Executive Officer at the Non-Native Species Secretariat, working with the Animal and Plant Health Agency in York. Her illustrated presentation, entitled “The Black Stuff – estimating burning on a grouse moor using recent carbon deposits”, draws on her research and will immediately follow our Annual General Meeting.
Meet at 8.00pm in the Dunnington Reading Room.
Admission is free to members, non-members £1.50, and refreshments 50p.
