Class Notes Jonathan S. Bishop 3/4/2015  

Dear Christy Khattab,

On Wednesday April 1, 2015 at 7:30pm, the Hammer Museum will be hosting a panel discussion addressing the effects of fracking on the quality and quantity of the nation's water with Humboldt State alumni Jonathan Bishop.

We thought this might make a nice outing for any Humboldt State alumni in the Southern California area. This program is free and open to the public, and there is the lovely AMMO café in the museum where a group could meet up beforehand for a glass of wine or a cup of coffee.

For more information, please visit our website:
