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 in the Department of Geography and Planning
at the University of Saskatchewan
. I am also a member of the Centre for Hydrology
and a founding member of the Global Institute of Water Security
. I lead the Beaver Ecohydro Lab
. 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 camera traps 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.
