FISH 447/448: Watershed Ecology & Management
Looking for a way to get your feet wet in watershed science? Enroll in Watershed Ecology and Management in Spring 2018, an investigation of stream and river ecosystems from a watershed perspective…and a darn good time.
Lectures will feature:
- Multidisciplinary views of the fundamental processes governing the striation and function of flowing aquatic ecosystems.
- Ecological focus on streams, rivers, and their surrounding catchments, with particular emphasis on the Pacific Northwest.
- Case studies to explore human interaction with rivers and varied approaches to river management.
Lab will feature:
- Hands-on laboratory and field experience in standard stream and river ecology methods.
- Three field trips: Taylor Creek (South Seattle), Big Beef Creek (Hood Canal), and the Methow River (Mazama WA, overnight).
