Talk Description: Josh’s work on the Elwha got the attention of the Yurok Tribe who, in 2019, recruited him to come south and be the lead ecologist to plan and implement the revegetation of three even larger reservoirs that will be exposed by Klamath Dam removal. Josh will discuss the planning and current efforts behind this work as they relate to the region native plants for this month’s SCNPSO talk. We look forward to seeing you all digitally!
Bio: Josh Chenoweth’s career in Botany began as a second career and a great escape from New York City and the horrendous world of television in 2001. In the ensuing 20 years, he worked on a variety of restoration projects from coastal wilderness to degraded subalpine campgrounds for Olympic National Park to riparian restoration projects on the Trinity and Sacramento Rivers in California. He earned a Masters in Science degree from the University of Washington in 2007. From 2008-2018 Josh was the lead ecologist responsible for planning and implementing the revegetation of two large reservoirs on the Elwha River, the largest dam removal project yet completed. This work on the Elwha has been published by Northwest Science (Brown and Chenoweth 2008), USGS (Woodward et al. 2011), and most recently by Restoration Ecology (Prach et al. 2019 and Chenoweth et al. 2021).
