Please come out to the Deer Park Tavern in Newark for the LAST Science Cafe of the academic year. We are very fortunate to host Professor Robin Morgan, who will speak on "Agriculture in Delaware and Beyond: Perennial Possibilities"
Professor Morgan served as Dean of the UD College of Agriculture and Natural Resources from 2002-12 and has been a leader in Delaware agricultural research since 1985. This is sure to be a fascinating talk and discussion.
