Dr. Joan Leong, an Associate Professor in the Biological Sciences Department, has been named a Faculty Fellow by the John T. Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies at Cal Poly Pomona University. The Fellowship supports Dr. Leong’s ongoing field research into wild bee pollination of seedless watermelon as an alternative to declining populations of managed European honey bees.
Landscape Architecture students, working with Assistant Professor Andy Wilcox, designed and installed a new Bocce Ball court in the permaculture garden at the Center. The design illustrates ecological functioning by capturing and directing rainwater runoff into a series of planting beds, while also providing a wonderful recreational resource at the Center. Bocce balls can be checked out by students, faculty and staff through the Center's main office.
