Bagley wins Society for Ecological Restoration student poster contest

Congratulations to SMEA student Ashley Bagley, whose poster on temperature variation and salmon abundance in Stillaguamish River floodplains won first place in the student poster competition at the Restoring Resilient Communities in Changing Landscapes Conference. The conference, hosted by the Society for Ecological Restoration and the Society of Wetland Scientists, brought together scientists, practitioners and decision makers to share knowledge about the ways in which ecological restoration can build resilience of ecological and human communities in changing landscapes. Bagley’s poster was based on her thesis research  that’s funded by the NW Climate Adaptation Science Center and focuses on identifying where floodplain restoration in the Stillaguamish River basin could provide the greatest increase in salmon habitat. She is collaborating with the Stillaguamish Tribe of Indians and Snohomish County, who will be able to use her research to help guide their future planning and restoration efforts.
