Stroud Water Research Center associate scientist, Melinda Daniels, Ph.D., will present the next Penn State Water Insights Seminar.

Watershed restoration has always presented an opportunity for addressing both ecological and human resiliency concerns, yet quantifying and communicating the connections between the two has been challenging. This has resulted in segmented, piecemeal restoration funding with limited ecological or human resiliency benefits. We appear to be in a phase of opportunity to produce larger, connected, holistic watershed restoration with clear and quantifiable improvements in both human and ecological resiliency. In this session we showcase a demonstration watershed restoration effort funded following Hurricane Sandy that employs multiple in-channel, floodplain, and hillslope strategies to restore hydrologic and water quality function to a headwater tributary of the Brandywine Creek watershed with dual goals of human and ecological resiliency to large magnitude disturbance events as well as persistent climate and land use change pressures.
