As part of the Institute on Ecosystems' Rough Cut Science seminar series, Dr. Hailey will give a talk titled "Hope on the Hardgrass: Can Community-Engaged Research Build Common Ground for Ranching and Conservation in the Western Great Plains" on Wednesday, March 13 at noon in Barnard Hall 126.
Dr. Hailey Wilmer is a social rangeland scientist studying the intersection of cultural, political and ecological systems and adaptive rangeland management. Originally from Livingston, Montana, she is a former high school agriculture teacher. She earned her Ph.D. from Colorado State University in Rangeland Ecosystem Science in 2016. As the Northern Plains Climate Hub Fellow, Hailey works with the Rangeland Resources Range Unit, and across USDA agencies and agriculture stakeholder groups on research that supports adaptive management in drought and extreme weather events. Hailey’s research methods include qualitative (e.g., interviews, focus groups) and quantitative ecological monitoring that document the decision-making processes of family ranches in Colorado and Wyoming.
