People are affected by environmental changes. For example, climate warming may lead to more carbon dioxide emissions from Arctic soils to the atmosphere, leading to greater warming, leading to an increase in mosquitoes and a greater risk of diseases carried by mosquitoes for people and wildlife.
“That means that as a society, we need to include these complex interactions across ecological systems in our planning to ensure we can ‘live with’ the conditions we create,” explains Assistant Professor of Biology Heidi Steltzer, recipient of the 2013 New Faculty Award.

When students learn, everyone benefits. And at Fort Lewis College, those benefits can be found every Thursday from spring to fall under the Clocktower in the center of campus. That's when students who have been studying and practicing organic growing techniques bring the fruits -- and vegetables and meats -- of their labor to campus for sale at the open-air Old Fort Farm Stand.
The foods are grown and raised at the Old Fort, the site of Fort Lewis College before it moved to Durango in 1956. The property 15 miles west of Durango was home to the original military Fort Lewis and an Indian boarding school, before becoming state property and the home of the school that eventually grew into Fort Lewis College.

To try and celebrate all of the achievements that Dr. Shere Byrd has accomplished in her time at Fort Lewis College would be a big task. Two of the most noticeable achievements that she’s been a part of recently are the construction of the new biology wing of Berndt Hall and the outfitting of the new labs with state-of-the-art equipment. These two accomplishments have helped lead the Biology program to new heights and helped one of the most popular majors at FLC continue to grow.
