Over the last eight weeks, eleven students from colleges and universities from around the Pacific Northwest and beyond have been conducting research with faculty in the College of the Sciences at CWU. Their research includes testing drought resistance in sunflowers with Jennifer Dechaine, surveying pika ranges with Kris Ernest, examining snow algae with Susan Kaspari, coring lakes to determine fire history with Megan Walsh, and interviewing farmers about their risk perception with Pamela McMullin-Messier. These diverse topics are all united by the theme of hazards and risks of climate change in the Pacific Northwest, and the students will be presenting their work at a poster session on Thursday, August 16, from 3:00-5:00 pm in Science II. Please join us to talk to the students and see their impressive work.

The Research Experience for Undergraduates is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation and the College of the Sciences.  For more information about our program and research opportunities check out our website at
