Andrew Fahlund will reflect upon 15 years of experience bringing rivers back to life, culminating with the removal of the two largest dams on the Elwha River in Washington. Fahlund joined Stanford University as the first executive director of Water in the West in January 2012. His talk, the 2013 Timothy C. Linnemann Lecture on the Environment, will explore the complex interactions of the physical, biological, economic, and cultural dimensions of river restoration. He will then look forward to where we hope to be with river restoration 15 years from now and how we might get there.
