Listen on JPR: Cougars As Ecosystem Engineers
Listen on Jefferson Public Radio:
Josh Barry ’19, was recently interviewed on Jefferson Public Radio with Panthera’s Puma Program Director, Mark Elbroch. Josh talks about the graduate research he is doing with Panthera into the role mountain lions play in ecosystems, specifically in the greater Yellowstone National Park ecosystem. He is studying the resources created by the mountain lion’s carrion on beetle (and other invertebrate) communities in Yellowstone.

Environmental Studies student Brooklyn Flick ’24 shares her experience interning at Sustainable Westchester. “As I move forward in my college career, I have begun to desire a way to put into practice what I have been learning in my classes. Therefore, when the opportunity to work with a company called “Sustainable Westchester” in their Zero Waste division opened up, I knew it sounded exactly right; or Recycle Right as I was later told.”
The Environmental Studies and Science department is hosting a Fall Speaker Series on Environmental Science and Policy. Our kick-off event on September 29 is a virtual webinar by Dr. Susanne Moser about science-practice interaction and communication on climate change resilience.
