WATER COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • Seasonal Variable Flows Webinar

On Thursday, November 6, 2014 the Water Resources Committee of the PNWS-AWWA is hosting the second webinar in a series regarding Seasonal Variable Flows (SVFs), also known as "ecological" or "environmental" flows. The scientific understanding of the impact of flow variations seasonally continues to expand yearly and those understandings have led to new policy proposals on releases from storage for habitat. To register visit: http://events.constantcontact.com/register/event?llr=fdcbrhjab&oeidk=a07ea0harzhe7c5407d or learn more at: https://sites.google.com/a/pnws-awwa.org/water-resources-committee/home/announcements/lunchandlearneventthursdaynovember62014noonto1pm

  • New Course Offering Winter 2015: ENGR 499/599 Engineering Design in Low Resource Environments
Dr. David Hill and Dr. Brian Wood are offering a new course as part of the Humanitarian Engineering Program. Engineering Design in Low Resource Environments will focus on decision-making and engineering solutions in environments that chronically (developing countries) or acutely (a location in the aftermath of a disaster) have low resources. For more information contact either Dr. Hill at dfh@engr.orst.edu or Dr. Wood at brian.wood@oregonstate.edu
  • Hydrophiles Fall Rafting Recap
If you missed the IWW-sponsored fall rafting trip, thanks to Grant Livingston you can read all about it! See attached.
  • Adventure Leadership Institute’s Wilderness First Aid & Wilderness First Responder
A great opportunity for those doing or interested in field work! Learn the essential skills of wilderness first aid and being a first responder in the wilderness through Recreational Sports’ Adventure Leadership Institute courses. Wilderness First Aid is occurring on Oct. 25-26, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., and Wilderness First Responder will occur Dec. 13 – 20 from 8 a.m.- 5 p.m. These courses are open to OSU students, Recreational Sports members and the general public. Learn more about the Adventure Leadership Institute at http://oregonstate.edu/recsports/ALI or check out the course schedules at http://oregonstate.edu/recsports/sites/default/files/term-schedules/f14_quarterly_schedule_ali.pdf 
  • Calling All Snow Lovers and Outdoor Enthusiasts! Screening of "Pretty Faces"
Join Women in Science for a screening of the all-women's ski film called Pretty Faces (trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=emAfKQveo_s; teaser: http://vimeo.com/105099376) on Wednesday, November 12 at the Majestic Theatre (doors at 6:30pm, film at 7:30pm)! This film, created by pro skier Lynsey Dyer, encourages females of all ages to get outside and celebrates women's achievements in the mountains. With the help of amazing sponsors including Hoodoo ski area, Peak Sports, and OSU's President's Commission on the Status of Women (PCOSW), we are able to bring this great film to Corvallis!
