Southern Illinois IGERT Students Blog About Watershed Science and Policy


Three students from Southern Illinois University’s IGERT program in Watershed Science & Policy contributed blog entries to profile their internships with Dr. Bryan Piazza at The Nature Conservancy in Louisiana. Their work, featured on the Conservancy’s Cool Green Science Blog, is part of the SIU IGERT’s goal of training interdisciplinary scientists by focusing on watershed management issues, including those in the Atchafalaya River Basin, Louisiana – the nation’s largest river swamp.
