AUGUST 29: “THE IMPROBABILITY OF WATER: AN INTRODUCTION TO WATERSHEDS”
Speaker: Dr. Claudia Luke, Director of SSU’s Field Station & Nature Preserves
Let go of your preconceptions of water and explore interactions and role of this ubiquitous substance in your daily life. Dr. Luke takes us on a one-hour tour of water — from molecular behaviors to global effects – focusing on the fascinating processes that go unnoticed under our noses and yet are critical to our existence on the planet. This enjoyable intellectual journey will leave you feeling more closely connected with your local landscapes.
Dr. Luke has 20 years of experience directing university field stations for the University of California and California State University. Throughout her career, she has developed research, education and management collaboratives to address regional environmental challenges, including watershed management and habitat connectivity.
