Opportunities in Science at Lewis & Clark

Summer Reading Group featuring “Compass & Gyroscope” by Kai Lee - Beginning Wednesday July 3rd in the Olin Lounge

July 01, 2013

Please join our summer reading group to discuss the issue of the “Future of salmon in the Columbia River. Is restoration possible?”   “Compass & Gyroscope” author Kai Lee uses the Columbia River Basin in the Pacific Northwest as a case study, describing the concept and practice of “adaptive management” as he examines the successes and failures of past and present management experiences.  Throughout the book, the author delves deeply into the theoretical framework behind the real-world experience, exploring how theories of science, politics, and cognitive psychology can be integrated into environmental management plans to increase their effectiveness.

Group meets Wednesday July 3rd through July 24th in the Olin Lounge.  Bring your lunch!
