I'm Cherie, an ecohydrologist seeking to understand beaver-dominated landscapes under a changing water supply to support natural solutions for ecosystem restoration, climate change resilience and strong public policy development.
I am a professor and the acting head of the Department of Geography and Planning at the University of Saskatchewan, am a member of the Centre for Hydrology and am a founding member of the Global Institute of Water Security. I lead the Rocky Mountain Ecohydrology research group. To me, science is the bedrock for good practice and so I founded Wise Beaver consulting. I am passionate about peat and a fan of the digital information that DamCams and small drones can provide to shed light on the critical yet confounding role that beavers play in regulating water flow through, and the function of, the landscapes they inhabit.
