Research, Teaching, Extension: A Value-Added Combination
Established in 2001, the Watershed Enhancement Fund supports watershed research and extension programs that strive to make research more accessible to industry and community partners.
The Watershed Enhancement Fund, comprised of an endowment from Forest Renewal BC (FRBC) and grants from community partners, supports two FRBC Endowed Research Chairs in Watershed Management and a Watershed Management Research Extension Facilitator. Together, this team develops and delivers programs that advance important research, foster connections between research and industry, engage with community partners and enrich student learning. Over 820 students have been taught by the Watershed Management Research Chairs, who have helped build on the strengths of existing programs by enhancing curriculum and providing hands-on learning and opportunities for graduate student research.
To learn more about this program, contact Marni Turek, Watershed Management Research Extension Facilitator. We look forward to hearing about your research and extension ideas, needs and opportunities.
