UM BRIDGES graduate students are hosting Science on Tap, at Imagine Nation Brewing, as part of Let’s Talk About Water (LTAW) Montana.

Dr. Clint Muhlfeld will present “Are Montana’s trout in hot water? Understanding climate change effects on freshwater ecosystems for climate adaptation in the northern Rockies” on Wednesday, Nov. 6th, 6-7 pm (and stay longer for more conversation!) at Imagine Nation Brewing, 1151 W. Broadway St. (There is usually a Middle Eastern food truck parked at Imagine Nation, or Tia’s is across the street.)

Clint Muhlfeld is a Research Aquatic Ecologist with the USGS Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center, and an Associate Professor at UM’s Flathead Lake Biological Station. Dr. Muhlfeld’s presentation will describe how freshwater species and ecosystems are responding to climate change and other stressors in the northern Rockies, and what managers are doing to conserve native species and their habitats in a changing world.

LTAW Montana is organized by graduate students at the University of Montana and supported by the Consortium of Universities for the Advancement of Hydrologic Science Inc., UM BRIDGES, the Montana Water Center, The River Center, Geum Consulting, and the Missoula Valley Water Quality District. LTAW Montana has also received support from many organizations and members of the community.

"This forum provides a great opportunity to bring Montana residents together to start a local dialogue around challenges and potential solutions associated with water quality and quantity," says Dr. Alisa Wade of the USGS North-central Climate Adaptation Science Center.
