Student videos from the class, "Ecology and Management of Sierra Nevada Rivers (ESP190, Spring 2013)"
An undergraduate course offered by the Center for Watershed Sciences, a unit of the John Muir Institute of the Environment, at the University of California, Davis.
Students were instructed in field research and video production. For most, this was their first filmmaking experience.
Students were responsible for all aspects of production (researching, writing, shooting, and editing). They worked in groups, with assistance from instructors. Topics centered around the Tuolumne River watershed.
A UC Davis seminar series of 9 lectures/panel discussions exploring the "reconciliation ecology" approach to saving species in a post-wild world. Reconciliation ecology, in the words of the ecologist Michael Rosenzweig who coined the term, "is the science of inventing, establishing and maintaining new habitats to conserve species diversity in places where people live, work and play." Ecologists, biologists, engineers, environmental regulators, environmentalists and others participated in this winter 2014 seminar hosted by the Center for Watershed Sciences and the California Environmental Law & Policy Center at UC Davis.
