Dear friends and river lovers,
I’m excited to share with you a new online short film we’ve just released about re-establishing wood habitat in streams… a common but not always intuitive part of river restoration. We hope this film can help shine more light on why these projects are important, and I invite you to help us share this in your networks and circles (the Vimeo video is easily embeddable in websites, blogs, social media using the ‘share’ button):
This film is the second of several shorts we’ll be releasing this year as part of our ‘Willamette Futures’ project, which is aimed at sharing the challenge and potential of restoring the waters of Oregon’s big river.
This is a great local conference being held just over the boarder in Tsawwassen, BC this year. Additionally, for students they offer free registration in exchange for volunteer hours (jeannie.gilbert) and travel grants (applications due April 1st). Both graduate students and undergraduates researching PNW estuaries and coats are encouraged to apply. More details below:
Pacific Estuarine Research Society 36th Annual Meeting
Towards an Estuarine Ethic: integrating science and stewardship
The theme for PERS 2013 is in the spirit of Aldo Leopold’s Land Ethic, where he promoted a personal environmental ethic in which homo sapiens was a member, not a master of the community or ecosystem.

Undergraduate Research Symposium application is open
The Annual Undergraduate Research Symposium is a chance for undergraduates to present what they have learned through their research experiences to a larger audience. The Symposium also provides a forum for students, faculty, and the community to discuss cutting edge research topics and to examine the connection between research and education. The Symposium includes poster and presentation sessions by students from all academic disciplines and all three UW campuses, plus invited guests.
