Colorado College Philosophy Professor Awarded Collaborative NSF Grant

Marion Hourdequin, assistant professor of philosophy at Colorado College, has been awarded a $244,881 grant from the National Science Foundation. Hourdequin received the grant in collaboration with David Havlick, assistant professor of geography and environmental studies at University of Colorado-Colorado Springs. The funding supports three years of research on the ecological restoration of former military lands, focusing specifically on lands now managed as National Wildlife Refuges. Hourdequin and Havlick will examine restoration goals at these military-to-wildlife (M2W) sites, many of which are heavily contaminated with toxic chemicals and unexploded ordnance, yet also are ecologically rich and relatively undeveloped.
