The 2012 Elwha Symposium

I served on the planning committee for this year's Elwha Science Symposium, which took place last week at both Peninsula College and NatureBridge. This year's event was great, with a few highlights for me. Notably, I was very involved in pulling off the public forum on Monday at Peninsula College. One of the things we tried to do was to ask researchers presenting science posters at the science sessions later in the week to bring their posters for viewing by the public. I wasn't quite sure how this would work out, but it seemed like a huge hit, with people stacked up in the hall checking out the latest work from a variety of investigators in a variety of disciplines. My own poster on the response of the shoreline to the removal of Aldwell dam:

is available for download in full resolution here.

With support from the Bureau of Reclamation and Peninsula College we were also able to webcast both Monday's public forum and a special science session on Wednesday morning. Working with Eric Waterkotte at Peninsula College on this was awesome, and we've ended up with a nice, widely available record of the events as a result. Both sessions will soon be available on-line, with access instructions for both sessions here.
