PLAN ON ATTENDING THE 2007 ANNUAL MEETING OF THE ANIMAL BEHAVIOR SOCIETY9>
The 44th annual meeting of the Animal Behavior Society will be held at the Burlington Sheraton Hotel and Conference Center in Burlington, Vermont, 21-25 July, 2007.
The city of Burlington is located on the eastern shore of Lake Champlain between the Adirondack and Green Mountains. Burlington is a college town, home to the University of Vermont, with a lively art scene and corporate headquarters of Bruegger's Bagels, Lake Champlain Chocolates, and the Magic Hat Brewing Company. Best of all, it is the home of Ben & Jerry! If so inclined, you can go sports fishing and kayaking on Lake Champlain, head to the Lake Champlain Maritime Museum at Basin Harbor, seek out handcraft products, rent a bike and hit the bike trails, or go hiking.
The Sheraton is only minutes from the airport and within walking distance of other motels. Thirty rooms are available for students at the reduced rate of $94.00 a night with possibility of up to four students to share.
