Society of Wetland Scientists Rocky Mountain Chapter (@SWS_org) and #RiverRestorationNorthwest Speaker Series Events!

Next month there are a pair of riparian and wetland events in Portland, OR and Denver, CO respectively. These are two of numerous "science pub" events that have become popular in the environmental fields. If you're in either the Denver or Portland metro areas, I suggest checking out these free events.

This December 17th, the Rocky Mountain chapter of the Society of Wetland Scientists presents Sara Skigen and Rod Chimner, of GEI and Michigan Tech respectively. These talks will focus on using wetlands to attenuate selenium (Skigen) and carbon sequestration in peatlands (Chimner) and will roll at the Irish Snug in Denver, CO.



Several hundred miles away, and a week prior, River Restoration Northwest will hold their December speaker series featuring NOAA Fisheries' Michael Pollock, who will be discussing the use of beaver in stream and salmonid restoration. His talk will ride on December 8th at the Lucky Lab Beer Hall in Portland, OR.
