Jessica RogersProtected areas in the Congo forest in central Africa have been called upon to do the same things as conservation easements in the North Country: protect the land and its uses for now and the future. Join Rogers for a discussion of the state of protected areas in central Africa and around the world, and what the communities can do in their own backyard.

Science Cafes bring together engineers, scientists and townspeople in a relaxed, informal setting, such as coffeehouses and pubs. The speaker makes a short presentation about a topic in his or her field, and then opens up the floor to discussion.
