Dr. Susan Salafsky: Lunch & Learn Keynote Presentation
May 14, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Friday, May 14th, Dr. Susan Salafsky will be presenting “Discovering Your Inner Scientist.” This presentation will take virtually from 12 – 1 p.m. Register here!
As an ecologist, Dr. Salafsky studied how extreme drought followed by record-high precipitation influenced forest food webs and identified the impacts of water retention and structural complexity on the productivity of habitats. She used this information to explore ways of modifying timber harvests to enhance the ability of terrestrial and aquatic species to withstand changing environmental conditions.
More recently, and in response to the pandemic, Dr. Salafsky is currently developing an Outdoor Science program and Community Science projects to enhance the engagement of students in environmental science and biodiversity conservation.
EXPLORE YOUR WORLD and FIND YOUR SUPERPOWER! We are so fortunate to be alive at this moment in time on this planet! Nature on Earth is truly astounding, and transformational scientific discoveries about our environment occur daily. Yes, there are also environmental, economic, social, and health crises, but there are also solutions. So, this all-ages presentation is about how to develop your skills, interests, and abilities to create unique contributions, healthier communities, and, ultimately, a better future.
