Inaugural Future Rivers Cohort Selected

SMEA Core Faculty member Dr. Cleo Woelfle-Erskine will be working closely with one of 6 master’s students selected for the inaugural Future Rivers cohort. UW School of Environmental and Forest Sciences student, Sofi Courtney, will be one of 12 master’s and doctoral students who will be helping to contribute to the growing body of knowledge on freshwater ecosystems and how changes in climate and the environment are protecting these vital resources.

Future Rivers aims to further the understanding of how communities will be impacted by changes to the freshwater ecosystems on which they are interdependent. Students in the program represent broad interdisciplinarity and will be afforded the opportunity to gain valuable applied experiences outside of academia that will help to connect academic work, industry, government, and community partners.
