The Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center’s next Spring Skills-Building Webinar is coming up on Tuesday, May 7th at 11:00 AM (PT). Register now for “Knowledge to Action: The Role of Social Drivers in the Recovery of Bull Trout in a Changing Climate.” In this webinar, Dr. Jason Dunham from the U.S. Geological Survey will discuss his experience working at regional and local scales to engage stakeholders in decision-making around bull trout recovery, tracing the journey from knowledge to action.
The WSU Sustainability Fair is a way for WSU faculty, staff, and students and companies to promote and share sustainability focused research, projects, services, and products within the WSU community. The fair will take place on April 22, 2019 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the WSU Compton Union Building (CUB) Senior Ballroom.
11-12pm: Sustainability and Environmental Research Poster Session- this will showcase an array of sustainability-related projects going on at WSU, and we encourage faculty, students, and staff to come check out the range of on-going research, from sustainable designs, to communicating risk, to modeling the environment. Plus, locally sourced desserts will be served afterwards!
12-1pm: Green Coug Awards– These awards take the time to appreciate the hard work that Cougs do to maintain a clean and healthy campus for the students of today and tomorrow. Come watch your fellows receive their award from WSU President Kirk Shultz!
The deadline is fast approaching for graduate students in British Columbia, Washington State, and Oregon interested in applying for the 2019 Bullitt Environmental Fellowship.
The Foundation awards this two-year, $100,000 Fellowship annually to one graduate student who has overcome adversity, demonstrates strong leadership potential, and is focused on work to safeguard the natural environment by promoting responsible human activities and sustainable communities in the Emerald Corridor, stretching from Vancouver, BC to Portland, OR.
Eligible candidates will have a strong academic record and a university faculty member who will nominate and recommend them. Students of color are highly encouraged to apply.
Please share this announcement widely and encourage qualified candidates to apply by April 26, 2019. Visit www.bullitt.org for more information.
The Northwest Climate Adaptation Science Center (NW CASC) invites proposals for its 2019-2020 Research Fellowship Program from graduate students at University of Washington (UW), Boise State University (BSU), University of Montana (UM), Washington State University (WSU) and Western Washington University (WWU) and postdoctoral scientists at BSU, UM, WSU, and WWU (this fellowship cannot support postdocs at UW). The NW CASC Fellowship Program provides both support for research related to climate adaptation in Northwest natural and cultural resource management and instruction of funded fellows in the principles and practices of co-producing decision-relevant (“actionable”) science. Funding will be available as early as Fall Term 2019, to support research performed during the 2019-2020 academic year (see below for information about specific funding period). Proposals are due April 15, 2019.
For more information and to apply.

“Ecology, Evolution, and Environmental Sciences – Opportunities at the National Science Foundation”.
A reception will follow. Hampton is also a professor in WSU’s School of the Environment. She was tapped to serve as the DEB division director in May 2018.
Prior to her NSF appointment, Hampton served as the director of WSU’s Center for Environmental Research, Education and Outreach. Her research expertise includes aquatic science, statistical analysis, and environmental informatics. She has analyzed long-term ecological data collected from globally diverse waters such as Lake Baikal in Siberia and Lake Washington in Seattle. Together with collaborators, she has shown how lakes respond to municipal management practices like sewage diversion. Hampton also has helped demonstrate the effects of climate change on plankton – the basic building blocks of aquatic food webs.
To schedule a one-on-one meeting with Hampton before or after her talk, contact Emily Brashear by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
