Richard B. Alley
Dr. Richard B. Alley To Give Keynote Address

Richard B. Alley, the Evan Pugh Professor of Geosciences and Associate of the Earth and Environmental Systems Institute at Pennsylvania State University. Dr. Alley, who has worked at Penn State since 1988, was awarded the Seligman Crystal in 2005 for his “prodigious contribution to our understanding of the stability of ice sheets and glaciers of Antarctica and Greenland, and of erosion and sedimentation by this moving ice.” He was one of several earth scientists from Penn State who contributed to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, a panel that shared the 2007 Nobel Prize with Al Gore. His work also includes interpretation of paleoclimatic records from ice cores, abrupt climate changes, physical properties of ice cores, ice-sheet collapse and sea-level change.

To read more about Dr. Alley, you can follow this link to an article that appeared in the Centre Daily Times.

Marcia Bonta
Saturday's Banquet Guest Speaker is: Marcia Bonta is the author of nine books, which are all currently in print, and over 300 magazine articles. The blog portion of this website includes her popular “Naturalist’s Eye” column from Pennsylvania Game News, the publication of the Pennsylvania Game Commission (PGC).

Marcia Bonta was born and raised in the wooded fringes of a suburban South Jersey town, Woodbury, NJ. Daughter of Harold and Leona Myers, she inherited her father’s love for forests, streams and swamps.  She went to Bucknell University because she loved the natural beauty of central Pennsylvania. Her college education gave her a broad knowledge of the liberal arts, a B.A. degree, and a husband, Bruce, whose jobs took the family to Washington, DC, Maine, and, since 1971, back to central PA. They raised their three sons on an isolated, forest-covered, mountaintop farm near Tyrone, where, inspired by the works of such authors as Hal Borland, Edwin Way Teale, Joseph Wood Krutch and Rachel Carson, Marcia began a writing career based on her daily explorations of the natural world.
