Conservation and restoration
This seminar series is a good way to hear about projects without the pressure of taking a whole class. You CAN take the whole series as a class for 2 units or you can just drop in to any seminar that sounds interesting.
Seminars are 6-7pm Monday evenings in CCBER Classroom - Rm 1013 harder south.
