The Fluvial Habitat Center and Ecogeomorphology and Topographic Analysis Lab presented numerous posters and talks at the recent Restoring the West conference on the Utah State campus. Wally MacFarlane, Martha Jensen, Alan Kasprak, Nick Bouwes, Elijah Portugal, Reid Camp, and I (Nate) all got the chance to present the lab's work in the Pacific Northwest, Colorado Plateau and beyond.
Joe Wheaton, and I (Nate) were fortunate to present our work with our academic, state and federal collaborators. It was a great two days of conversations, ideas and presentations and was made possible by the work and financial support of Utah State University Forestry Extension and the Utah State University Quinney College of Natural Resources.
The full conference archive and presentation videos can be found at: restoringthewest.org
My (Nate's) summary of the conference is online here.

Nate was recently interviewed on UPR about restoration work in the lab, his EPA Star Fellowship, and the upcoming Restoring the West conference. Listen to the interview here.

As hard as it was to write a third-person title about myself (at Joe's request), it's easier than answering questions on your science with the media for the first time. Mary-Ann Muffoletto, publicist and outreach specialist for USU's Quinney College of Natural Resources, was very professional and courteous as she interviewed me about my recent EPA STAR graduate fellowship that I was awarded for 2014-16. For the duration of the fellowship, I'll be modeling functional plant diversity in riparian zones of the American intermountain West and Pacific Northwest, trying to identify climatic and hydrologic thresholds in riparian ecosystem change. This work is being undertaken with numerous long-term data sets from the PACFISH/INFISH Biological Opinion, Columbia Habitat Monitoring Program, and USGS. My collaborators will include Brett Roper and Dave Merritt from the USFS, Mike Scott from the USGS and my dissertation committee (Nancy Huntly and Jim Lutz) at Utah State University.
Mary-Ann's write-up can be found here: http://www.usu.edu/ust/index.cfm?article=54172&nl=397
Thanks to Mary-Ann for her ongoing coverage of our lab's work and the work coming out of QCNR!
