Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument Research Symposium

Please join us for this free virtual and in-person event during which the three university student researchers who received grants from our Friends Research Fund in 2023 will present their findings!

This will be a hybrid event taking place in the Science Auditorium (Room 151) of the Southern Oregon University Science Hall, and over Zoom. A Zoom link will be sent out before the event to those who register.

The student presenters this year are:

Trevor Holt is a senior biology major at Southern Oregon University. He will be working with his advisor, Dr. Jacob Youngblood, to catalog the grasshopper species found within the Monument and pilot a long-term monitoring program.

Tayla Moore is a senior biology major at Southern Oregon University. She will be working with her advisor, Dr. Jacob Youngblood, to map the distribution and uncover the natural history of the Siskiyou Short-horned Grasshopper, a species endemic to the Cascade-Siskiyou bioregion.

Hilary Rose Dawson is a Ph.D. candidate in Biology at the University of Oregon. Working with her advisor, Dr. Lucas Silva, at the University of Oregon, she will expand on her previous work to create a preliminary list of truffle (underground-fruiting fungi) species found in the Monument.

The Friends of Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument’s mission is to support the protection, restoration and conservation of the Monument through service, advocacy and education. Our Hike-and-Learn programs are designed to introduce the public to different topics and locations within the Monument. Hike and Learns are co-created with local scientists, historians, artists, students, and more.
