Mitchell Center seeks designer for Acadia study
Want to apply your new media skills to help the environment? Sarah Nelson, a researcher at the Senator George J. Mitchell Center for Environmental and Watershed Research, is looking for a student to help design a publication and/or Web site to document a study of mercury in watersheds in Acadia National Park.

"Mercury is a serious human health issue," says Sarah, "but it also affects wildlife." (Maine has a statewide fish consumption advisory.) The research is focused at Acadia, and the Park Service is likely to be involved. The research results are a series of papers by mostly UMaine scientists to be printed in a special issue of a journal, so the project is likely to get some publicity at the university and legislature level.

The project will be completed in spring 2007. Students interested in working on this as an independent study or capstone should contact Sarah via First Class or 581-3454.
