*Notice Board*

If you have not yet done so , Please fill out this post-project survey on Environmental Service asap.

Final exam grades are now posted. To determine your final course grade add this (out of 150) to your total points from the previous spread sheet and divide by 600.

Class average was 76% on the final -- very good for a cumulative final! And better yet, overall class average for the course was 81% --- this is the first time I have ever had a large class do so well collectively. Congratulations!

Look for a feature article on your Botanical Garden service in their newsletter and for some good press elsewhere.

Thanks for your many contributions this semester! I've enjoyed working with you and hope to see more of you in the future!

Just as a reminder: if you need to discuss your grade, you must make an appointment to speak with me in person: by law I cannot do so via email or phone.
