CERF Scott W. Nixon Memorial Fund for Students
To honor Scott Nixon’s lifelong and broad contributions to the knowledge and stewardship of our coasts and estuaries, the family has asked that in lieu of gifts or flowers that you make a contribution to the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation (CERF).
CERF has created a special fund for this purpose named the Scott W. Nixon Memorial Fund.
Scott was a longtime supporter, member and leader of CERF. To honor his service, CERF will use all funds contributed in memory of him to support student participation in CERF meetings and events, such as its biennial conferences. Any student, presenting or not presenting, will be eligible to apply for a scholarship to attend any CERF conference, workshop or other such meeting.
Thank you all for your gracious wishes during this very sorrowful time for family, friends and colleagues.
A blog has been created to provide a central place to connect the community of Scott's family, students, friends and colleagues. The creators of the blog intend for this website to provide a way to share information regarding Scott's Memorial Service as well as future events honoring his life and work, post published tributes to Scott, and connect with one another.
