"This fellowship has allowed me to continue my studies, which are increasingly interdisciplinary.Im working on a database about invasive species in the Great Lakes that lists likely invaders from other bodies of water and countries. After graduation, I want to work in ecological restoration."
Professor Bunyan Bryant
Professor Bunyan Bryant has devoted his notable career to environmental justice, social activism and mentoring SNRE students. Now he has taken an important step to ensure his legacy is passed on to a new generation of scholars by donating $100,000 to the Bunyan Bryant Scholarship Fund in Environmental Justice. "Todays environmental crises demand that we as a nation become more visionary," he said. "If we fail to plan, we will blunder into the future with a host of environmental problems."
M. Jerome Rieger (A.B. 40, M.B.A. 41) had a lifelong love of trees. An ardent student of forestry, he possessed an uncanny ability to identify an enormous range of species, even in Latin. He'd walk down the street and tell you the names of every tree, said his son, Richard O. Rieger (A.B. '79) of Bedford, N.Y. Richard decided to honor his late fathers passion for the woods by establishing the M. Jerome Rieger Saginaw Forest Enrichment Fund through a $250,000 gift. The fund will help implement a new SNRE stewardship plan for Saginaw Forest.
