Leanne Roulson, an adjunct professor of Ecology and president-elect of the American Fisheries Society, will participate in a virtual briefing to Congress about how conservation solutions can make fish and aquatic communities more resilient to climate change.
The virtual briefing is on Thursday, May 6, at noon Mountain time. Registration is available at https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/5647072343167075339.
Roulson will be presenting examples of recent efforts and events in Montana related to trout, habitat and recreational fishing. Other researchers will speak to similar efforts in other parts of the country.
"Our intent is to present some relatable aspects of science and fisheries management across the U.S." she said.
Roulson teaches Science Communication Ecology at MSU and is a member of the Climate Ambassadors Program sponsored by American Fisheries Society to assist scientists in applying science communication techniques with non-scientist audiences on current issues and concerns.
