The event starts at 3:30 p.m. in HUB 334, and you can learn more about the presenters on our event page.

Wednesday kicks off with a 9 a.m. celebration of the UW's Salmon Safe Certification in HUB 337. In the afternoon, the UW Botanic Garden is offering a tour of the Center for Urban Horticulture from 2:30-3:30 p.m., including Merrill Hall - the first certified "green building" on campus - and the surrounding gardens. Free, but RSVP here.
