Cozy up with your favorite "sip" while participating in this evening science-focused pub talk from the comfort of your own living room! During this talk, LWC Executive Director Kristen Larson and LWC Project Manager Jean-Paul Zagarola will explain how the LWC and its partners have approached restoration planning over the past two decades. You will also see and hear about some examples of the many projects implemented over the years and a few on the horizon!
Kristen Larson has been the Executive Director of the Luckiamute Watershed Council since September 2012. Shortly after starting the job, she and her husband became Ash Creek watershed residents, moving from Corvallis to Independence. Kristen has a bachelor's degree with a double major in Biology and Environmental Science from the College of William and Mary. Kristen has worked in science communications, outreach, and management, and after teaching English in Thailand, returned to Oregon to complete a Professional Science Master's degree in Environmental Science with a focus on water resources at Oregon State University.
Jean-Paul Zagarola is an ecologist with Bonneville Environmental Foundation (BEF) and has been managing projects for the Council since 2013. He earned a BS at Portland State University where he first became interested in community-based watershed management and restoration. He later earned his MS as a Fulbright Scholar studying adaptive ecosystem management strategies in southern Patagonia. Beyond his research experience, Jean-Paul has built a broad social-ecological skill set through his project management experience in the Luckiamute, Middle Fork Willamette and Siuslaw Watersheds and his more recent experience managing Willamette-wide restoration efforts for BEF.
