River Restoration Northwest (RRNW) is excited to announce that we will be hosting a screening of our third annual ‘Stories of Our Watersheds’ film event on October 12, 2016 in Seattle. This film screening will be held at the Columbia City Theater and feature a series of short films that celebrates our watersheds and the understanding that everyone lives in a watershed.
We, in partnership with the Graduate School, are excited to announce a collaborative summit taking place in the Fall titled “Strengthening STEM through Diversity.” The event aims to bring together students, staff, and faculty in STEM-related fields in order to address the needs, challenges, and successes of underrepresented or minoritized members of these fields. The events of the day will include plenary talks, a panel of student leaders in STEM diversity RSOs, and a workshop with the goal of designing an action plan for future support of diversity in STEM.
On Sunday, June 26th, all University of Washington students, faculty, staff, and alumni, from all campuses, are invited to come MARCH with their fellow Huskies at the Seattle Pride Parade. LGBTQ or Ally, all are welcome!

Hey SAFS community!
Just imagine for a minute if all the stories from around the world about what connected rivers mean for fish and people were collected in one place…well, the FEC lab is partnering with Society for Conservation Biology and World Fish Migration Foundation on an ambitious project for the upcoming World Fish Migration Day to do that, and are asking for help/stories/social media love – whatever you’ve got!
