Call for Participants ASEH 2015

Hello Colleagues,

I am looking to organize a panel for ASEH 2015 in Washington, D. C. that focuses on environments along the Canadian-American border. The conference theme focuses on national and international policy, and I am thinking of remaining somewhat connected to this theme. A working title for the panel could be "Environment and Policy along the Canadian-American Border: Opportunities and Challenges."
