Weyerhaeuser forest community ecologist Dr. Laura Six will speak Friday at Centralia College as part of the college’s Rising Tide Science Seminar Series. 

The event is scheduled for noon to 12:50 p.m. Friday in room 121 of the Walton Science Center. Light refreshments will be served. All are welcome. 

The event is sponsored by Centralia College and the Associated Students of Centralia College.

Six majored in Conservation of Wildland Resources at the University of Washington and studied root and shoot morphology of forest understory plants for her master’s degree. She studied agroforestry management in Uruguay for her Ph.D.

At Weyerhaeuser, Six focuses on monitoring species and conservation, biodiversity research and environmental education. 

On Friday, she will give a presentation on a research effort across western Washington and Oregon on vegetation changes after harvests.
