(Nov. 8, 2004) GENEVA, N.Y.– Throughout each academic semester the Finger Lakes Institute (FLI) has intern and independent study students conducting research on the Finger Lakes region. Topics of research pertain to the Institute's four core initiatives: educational outreach, research, community outreach and public service, and economic development.

The FLI will host an opportunity for the Finger Lakes community to learn of the progress made by each intern and independent study student at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 17, at the Institute, 601 S. Main Street, Geneva.

The four seniors include Sarah Evans, who will present on water supply issues in the Finger Lakes region; Jeff Sousa, who will discuss the economic impact of wineries in the Finger Lakes region; Eric Pasho, who will discuss Science on Seneca high school curriculum development; and Kate Kana, who will present on the development of in-house environmental education programs.
