U.S. Senior Senator Robert Menendez and U.S. Junior Senator Cory Booker will be holding a press conference in the Center for Environmental Life Sciences (CELS) advocating legislation regarding inhibiting seismic exploration.

When & Where

  • Friday, April 22
  • 12:45-2:00 p.m.
  • CELS Building Atrium

The Senators will be advocating legislation aimed at inhibiting seismic exploration, a technique used to search for oil/gas, along the New Jersey coast. They are deeply concerned with the possible impact this might have on the coastal ecosystem and eventually on some of the most complex members of the food web, including the North Atlantic Right Whale.

This event will highlight in part the Montclair State University's commitment to research in marine biology with Dr. Paul Bologna, from the department of Biology, sharing his insight on the health of our coastal system.

Students attending will be able to ask questions and meet with the Senators.
