I received the following email from the Mountain Studies Institute today and thought I'd pass it along:
San Juan Bark Beetles and Watersheds Workshop
Please join the Western Water Assessment (WWA), the Mountain Studies Institute (MSI), and the San Juan Headwaters Forest Health Partnership for a workshop exploring the water-related impacts of bark beetle infestations in the San Juans and the Rocky Mountain West.
The goals of the workshop are to:
· Share key findings and uncertainties from beetle-water research in Colorado and elsewhere in the West, and describe ongoing studies
· Seek input from resource managers on the Western Slope about their water/watershed concerns and information needs related to ongoing beetle infestations
· Help connect decision-makers with researchers and information resources
Water managers, forest managers, other decision-makers, researchers, and anyone with an interest in the topic are encouraged to attend.
Please REGISTER HERE by April 1. There is no cost for the workshop, but space is limited.
