Tree Dedication at Université Sainte-Anne

Sturdy Maple From Our Newest Member Institution

On October 18, Université Sainte-Anne celebrated Science Atlantic’s 60th anniversary by dedicating a maple tree to the organization. 

The tree is located in a beautiful wooded area that has become a popular meeting spot for students, faculty, and other researchers at the university.

Université Sainte-Anne is the newest and smallest member of Science Atlantic, but like the maple tree they chose, their connection with Science Atlantic will remain strong and sturdy for many years to come. 

Kristen Noel (BSc 2019) was the first student from this University to attend a Science Atlantic Aquaculture & Fisheries and Biology Conference. At the ceremony, she shared how her undergraduate research and experience at the conference helped prepare her for graduate work and a career in conservation biology.
