My primary outreach activities involve working with management agencies such as the National Park Service to help them be responsible stewards of the land. I also have been monitoring an area of old-growth National Forest in the Oregon Cascades for more than 20 years to trace the impact of climate change on this ecosystem. My teaching focuses on introductory and advanced applications of physical geography. This website provides examples of the research, teaching, publications and research student projects that are done in my lab.
