    About This Project

    The emerald ash borer (EAB) is spreading west and is expected to heavily impact Oregon ash forests when it arrives on the West Coast. I want to survey the natural and unique native Oregon ash communities before EAB arrives and potentially destroys them. Learning how wetland soils and the forest canopy shape and preserve these hotspots of biodiversity will help define what is at stake, and will inform future restoration efforts.

    Blast off!
