Congratulations to Kira, who was awarded an Oregon State University, College of Forestry Graduate Fellowship ($6,000) and the Oregon Lottery Scholarship ($1,500). Both of these awards are granted based on academic merit.
Kira is continuing her research this summer in the Canadian Rocky Mountains, investigating the impacts of forest harvesting operations on runoff, erosion, and sediment transport into, and through, riparian buffers.
Dr. Bladon joined a delegation of colleagues from the OSU College of Forestry on an international trip to visit forestry and related programs in Chile from March 21-29, 2015.
