Brian Bodenbender from Hope College Environmental and Geological Sciences will give a talk on Litter and Water.



Brian Bodenbender has been teaching geology and environmental science at Hope College since 1996 and is a member of the Campus Sustainability Committee. He engages students in research in both geology and environmental science.

Along with his on-campus classes, he teaches geology, biology and sustainability courses on Eleuthera Island in the Bahamas. Although he enjoys taking students into bat-, snake- and spider-infested caves, helping them avoid deadly plants and vertebrates, introducing them to anoxic slime, decaying compost and smoldering landfills, and exposing them to bites, stings and punctures from insects, plants, marine invertebrates and unreasonably sharp rocks, the highlight of teaching in the Bahamas is leading students to visit the Three Beautiful Places.
