Thesis Defense: Megan McPhaden!

Megan McPhadenAre you interested in local agriculture? Salmon? Clean water? Want to hear about ditches?! Then come out to Megan McPhaden’s Master’s Thesis Defense this Wednesday: “Effects of Agricultural Drainage Ditch Maintenance on Water Quality in the Snoqualmie River Valley.”

McPhaden’s research is in partnership with the King Conservation District and contributes to the question of how agricultural waterways can be managed to support the needs of both local farmers and endangered salmon. There will be refreshments and treats from farms in the Snoqualmie River valley.

McPhaden’s talk begins at 10 a.m. in Anderson 22 on Wednesday, May 29; Professors Darlene Zabowski and Susan Bolton are co-chairs of her committee.

Rally your friends and classmates to give her a proper send-off from SEFS!
