[ARCHIVED] "Science Café" online with the Museum of Nature and Science and Sigma Xi

Science Cafe

The Museum of Nature & Science and Sigma Xi present “Science Café – Irrigation and Stream Restoration,” with guest speaker Skuyler Herzog, Ph.D.
Dr. Herzog joins us via Zoom at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2023, from Oregon State University-Cascades. Please contact, or call 575/522-3120, for a link to the program or go to with webinar ID 86551693049.
 The Upper Crooked River, near Post, Ore., was historically a perennial river, but now runs dry every summer due to a combination of land use changes, irrigation withdrawals, climate change, and channelization. A diverse coalition of stakeholders, from ranchers to environmental nonprofits, wants to know if floodplain reconnection can restore perennial flow to benefit society and wildlife, but this scientific question is far from settled. This presentation addresses not only the physical science of floodplain reconnection hydrology, but also the complex socio-political context of the project.
 Skuyler Herzog is an Assistant Professor of Natural Resources Program at Oregon State University-Cascades, in Bend, Ore. Skuyler is a hydrologist specializing in groundwater-surface water interactions.
 Like the water quality problems he studies, Skuyler’s research does not fit neatly into traditional management sectors. He works with water practitioners, stakeholders, and regulators to translate scientific results into practical management solutions.
The Museum of Nature & Science, 411 N. Main St., is accessible via RoadRUNNER Transit Route 1, Stop 1. For information, visit the Museums System website at, or follow us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter @LCMuseums.
