Hi all!
My name is Sarah Wofford, and I am an assistant professor in the Biology Department. I am trying to organize a series of small events this year to get students involved with the surrounding community, and wanted to extend this opportunity to faculty and staff as well. Please see the message below and email me ([email protected]) with questions you might have!
The Alabama Coastal Cleanup is a subset of the International Coastal Cleanup group, and Alabama is one of several of the Gulf States host their own annual events. Even though Jacksonville is not on a coast, we still have several impaired local waterways that impact our region. For this reason, I am hosting a small AL Coastal Cleanup event in Jacksonville, AL, this year. We welcome anyone to pick up trash alongside or in local waterways and ask that they document what they find. You can do this on your own or in a group anytime between now and Sept 30. I just ask that people fill out and email me data cards (I've attached the Trash Data Form) for us to send the data back to the home office in Spanish Fort/Mobile. If you'd rather attend an event, I am welcoming anyone that is interested to meet me in the parking lot behind the Martin Hall/McGee Science Center Complex at 7:45am on Saturday, Sept 21. We will go pick up trash near local waterways until about 10am. People can stay as long or as little as they like!
โ€‹
I have attached the official flyer with my contact info, the data card, and a press release from the Alabama Coastal Cleanup home office that provides more info about the program. I will provide trash bags and will have some gloves and safety vests on hand. Please wear closed toe shoes and bring sunscreen, bug spray, and water! I will have Coastal Cleanup t-shirts (for free) from previous years of the program and a signup sheet for anyone that would like a t-shirt from this year's event. โ€‹โ€‹
Please feel free to spread the word or reach out with any questions you have!

Please join Professor Kristin Edwards tomorrow, July 10th, for a squishy science project on DNA! Cells are the basic unit of life and make up all plants, animals and bacteria. Deoxyribonucleic acid, or DNA, is the molecule that controls everything that happens in the cell. DNA contains instructions that direct the activities of cells and, ultimately, the body. Professor Edwards will give us a lesson on DNA and then we will isolate DNA from Strawberries!

Professor Edwards was born in Huntsville, Alabama. She attended JSU for her B.S. degree and the University of Mississippi Medical Center for her Ph.D. Her research focuses on the part of the cell responsible for producing energy, the mitochondria.She enjoys spending time with family and friends, watching sports, and attending concerts. Dr. Edwards is a professor in JSU's Department of Chemistry & Geosciences.
