The public is invited to attend the 14th Annual Department of Biological Sciences Student Poster Symposium and the second annual photo competition by the Chico State Herbarium on May 14, 1–4 p.m., in Holt 225, 227 and 235 on the California State University, Chico campus.

An awards seminar will follow in Holt 170 at 4 p.m.

During the Biology Poster Symposium, biology students display the results of their research projects. Visitors can view the poster displays in several locations throughout Holt Hall, and authors are frequently present to discuss the results of their work.

This is a great opportunity to learn about the cutting-edge research being done by students. In addition to the research posters, students from upper division courses will also display flora and fauna collections from this year.

The Chico State Herbarium, part of the Gateway Science Museum, sponsored a competition for regional high school and middle school photographers. Photos from the competition will be on display in Holt 129. The herbarium staff will be on hand to give tours of the herbarium collections located in Holt 131.

Refreshments will be available. For information, call the Department of Biological Sciences, 530-898-5356.
