The series takes place every Tuesday at 7:00pm-8:20pm in Gallagher Business Building Room 122 on the UM campus.

Description: Jeff Crane will be sharing the story of the Elwha River, providing the history of the damming of the river, the efforts to restore the river and its salmon fisheries, and the impacts of the dam removals so far. He will also spend some time discussing his new project, an environmental history of the Nisqually River.

His scholarship has focused on river development, protest against dams, impacts on salmon and other fisheries, and river restoration efforts. His current scholarship includes work on urban farming as ecological protest and researching river and nearshore restoration efforts in the Pacific Northwest and the beneficial impacts of restoration, particularly as they help build resilience against climate change.
