This project also draws on work completed this spring by Courtney Cohen (Lafayette College ’21), who explored the effects of environmental education and communications, and Sarah Steenbergen (Muhlenberg College ’18), who explored the dimensions of health impact assessments.
Additional ideas came from ‘Easton River Walk – Bridging Community, History, and Landscape’, a 2017 presentation by Lafayette College students Matthew Baldino ’18, Steven Cohen ’18, Tucker Emery ’17, Kelly Hogan ’18, Emily Maj ’18, Katherine Millar ’18, Bryan Sherrill ’18, and Dawei Zhang ’17.
