Through a partnership with the University of Washington and King County, students are needed to develop a Forest Stewardship Plan for the 600-acre Soaring Eagle Regional Park in Sammamish, WA just east of Seattle. Students develop and deliver a professional-quality plan which King County will use for forest management decisions.
The Forest Stewardship Plan will require a range of tasks with room for students to focus on a particular interest area. Students will be required to also assist in field work, analysis, and writing to complete the plan in coordination with other students, instructors, and King County foresters.
· Forest inventory and data collection
· Forest growth modeling in FVS
· Develop logging systems plans
· Develop public outreach strategies
· GIS analysis and map making
· Carbon storage
· Other resource areas related to forest management
Please see attached flyer for more details.
Derek Churchill will advise students with assistance from Paul Fischer on this Capstone/Research, in conjunction with King County foresters.
