Cleo Woelfle-Erskine – Future Rivers faculty advisor and SMEA assistant professor teamed up with July Hazard – CHID assistant professor – to ask climate scientists, ecologists, choreographers, poets, and creatives to share their unique perspectives on how queer and trans identities can and do play important roles in shifting the way we think about the sciences and our relations with the more-than-human.
We are excited to announce the launch of our feature film screening series!
Join us in celebrating Earth Week with a free screening of the film Kiss the Ground, which provides a solution to balancing our climate, replenishing our freshwater supplies, and feeding the world.
Dr. David Butman, UW associate professor in the School of Environmental and Forest Sciences and Future Rivers Executive Committee member, co-authored a recently published paper suggesting that the CO2 emissions from Chinese inland waters have greatly offset the terrestrial carbon sink and are therefore a key component of China’s carbon budget.
The School of Environmental and Forest Sciences Ecosystem Biogeochemistry Lab is looking for a research assistant to contribute to an ongoing project which seeks to understand how vegetation and seasonal changes in lake level influence current estimates of greenhouse gas emissions.
Future Rivers Executive Committee member and UW’s School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences assistant professor Chelsea Wood’s novel research on the ecology of parasites and pathogens in a changing world was the subject of a recent article in National Geographic and NatGeo UK.
Fellows are elected for life, and the honor recognizes scientists who advance or apply ecological knowledge in academics, government, nonprofits and the broader society.
Save the dates for our upcoming lunchtime film and speaker series! Each session will start with a one-hour screening of an episode of the PBS docuseries H2O The Molecule That Made Us, followed by a facilitated conversation and open Q&A with an expert panel focused on main themes of that episode (e.g., big data, history and civilization, and the intersection of health and global water politics).
A new report from a broad range of collaborators including the Climate Impacts Group covers the weather/climate of the 2020 water year and impacts to different sectors.
This month’s UW School of Marine and Environmental Affairs student blog features a conversation with Dina Gilio-Whitaker, a prominent author and scholar on the history and displacement of Indigenous peoples.

When it comes to things that give us the heebie-jeebies, parasites reign supreme. Although they might give us the creeps, they are essential to ecosystems. Chelsea Wood, Future Rivers executive committee member, talks with Bill Nye on Science Rules!
