There is a demand today in government sector jobs for environmentalists, ornithologists, limnologists, hazardous waste chemists, toxicologists, and myriad other natural science majors. These specialties are needed to address the demands of a constantly warming planet, a burgeoning populace, and the demand on natural resources that require carefully constructed, science-based strategies to drive pubic policy and affect positive regulation in a business-friendly environment. Come and hear a presentation on the experiences of a New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection research scientist concerning how natural science and biological research can affect legislation, litigation, and conservation in the needs of a vast New Jersey forest habitat and the biota that live amongst the trees.
