READING THE ELWHA: Tracing the Dynamics of Landscape Change L ARCH 498A (SLN# 11964); L ARCH 598A (SLN# 11968); 4 credits Planning Meeting July 24th, 2014, 5:00-7:00 pm, GLD 312 Camping Trip: July 28th – August 1st, 2014
Located on the Olympic Peninsula, the Elwha Rivers flows north out of the Olympic Mountains in Olympic National Park before emptying into the Straits of Juan de Fuca. Historically the river supported diverse and viable populations of five species of salmonids, but for the last century two dams have blocked the river to migration and altered the biophysical processes of the watershed. After three years of deconstruction, the dams will have been fully removed and the historic flows of the river will return. The removal marks the largest dam removal in U.S. history and establishes a precedent for the future management of rivers in the Pacific Northwest and the U.S. This course is a five-day, four night (July 28th – August 1st, 2014) field intensive exploration of the watershed. Activities include moderate hiking in all areas of the watershed and discussions with the public agencies and tribes that have led and are studying the biophysical responses of the river. Aside from the week!
in the field the class meets formally for one planning meeting prior to the trip (July 24th). The class is open to all University of Washington students. An informational meeting will be held in mid-April, but questions regarding the class are always welcome. Please direct inquiries to Ken Yocom, email@example.com.

The UW Society of Women Engineers and the Engineering dorms are hosting an Engineering Majors Fair on Tuesday, May 6, 5:30 – 7pm for UW students who are interested in pursuing engineering, and they need upperclassmen to speak about their majors in a casual environment.
Dan Feetham, the pre-engineering adviser, encourages volunteers to bring an “artifact”, such as capstone projects, research projects, or any item that they can use to help explain and illustrate the work they do in their major. Discovery Day displays are great to bring too!
Event: Engineering Majors Fair
Date: Tuesday, May 6, 2014
Time: 5:30 – 7pm
Location: McCarty ABC Rooms
Volunteer Sign-up [Deadline: Wed. 4/23]: https://catalyst.uw.edu/webq/survey/swe/233576
Setup & volunteering: There will be a table set up for each engineering department, and each table should have 2-5 students at all times (volunteers may take different shifts), with at least one interesting “artifact” (ex. research projects, Discovery Day displays) at the table. Pre-engineers will be able to visit any of the tables throughout the fair (career fair style, but more laid-back).

Lavender Grad is open to any student eligible, at any level (undergrad or graduate/professional) for a graduation in the 2013-2014 (including fall 2014) academic year. The Q Center and QSC host Lavender Graduation as a time for the UW queer, trans*, two-spirit, same gender loving, and allied communities to come together and celebrate our multiple identities, our accomplishments, and sheer AWESOMENESS. You do not have to be graduating or be of a certain sexual or gender identity/orientation/expression to participate and/or attend the Lavender Graduation year-end celebration. Everyone is welcome and wanted!!!
Here is what graduates say about Lavender Graduation:
“I felt more embraced and supported by community than I had during the rest of my time as a PhD student. Lav Grad was awesome!”
“Lav Grad was such a warm and welcoming ceremony that instilled such a sense of pride…I got to stand in front of my friends and family and have the feeling that all parts of my life got to come together for the first time.”

Dress: You can wear whatever you want! This is your graduation and as queer and trans* folks we are often “required” by work, school, family, culture, etc. to dress in ways that do not necessarily fit our tastes. If you wish to wear the cap and gown, wear it. If you want to appear in drag, do it. All clothing has cultural significance, but sometimes we want to wear cultural regalia that honors our history,ourselves and the moment, please do so! If you want to dress up, or down, go for it. You want to be comfy, have at it. This is your night. All of your identities are celebrated as is the awesomeness that is you and our UW queer communities!
“Lavender Graduation was one of the most joyous moments of my life so far. It was wonderful to be in a room with so many queer people and allies, celebrating making it through 4 years. The whole event was amazing and life affirming.”
Once again, the English Department is collaborating with Marine Biology to offer an incredible opportunity: what could be more fun than spending fall quarter in the San Juan Islands at the UW’s Friday Harbor facility, writing creatively, reading, and studying the marine environment? Creative writing, literature, and marine biology credit (NW credit, hands-on and suitable for non science types) is available — along with beach combing, riding around in boats, and sharing an experience you’ll always remember with faculty and other students in the beautiful accommodations up at Friday Harbor.
The program fees include everything: tuition, room, three delicious meals per day, snacks, and course materials. Your only cost is your ferry ride to Friday Harbor and pocket money!

The Rogue River/Siskiyou National Forest will soon be advertising as Engineering Technician position. Please see the attached outreach notice for more details. The position is located in Gold Beach, Oregon. It’s a geat opportunity in a beautiful part of the state.
The NRCS will be announcing the soil scientist pathways summer interns https://www.usajobs.gov/StudentsAndGrads tomorrow on USA jobs https://www.usajobs.gov/. This announcement will only be open for 5 days. Please let any interested soil scientist student know about this excellent opportunity. The pathways program leads to a permanent job with the Soil Science Division. There will be 11 locations across the US, which means we are hiring 11 students. Our region will be placing a student in Ontario, OR and Fairbanks, AK for this summer. Both of those offices are 100% focused on initial soil survey.
Travel to the location will be paid and the students will receive a 1000-1500 stipend. I’m not sure of the exact amount.
Additionally, there are three locations for ESI pathways students. I think these will only be advertised as rangeland management specialists. These positions will lead to a permanent job on the SSD staff as a ESI specialist. Despite our best effort, SSR01 will not be receiving an ESI pathways student this year.
