Watershed Sciences is a multidisciplinary department in the Quinney College
of Natural Resources.  Our faculty conduct research in geomorphology,
hydrology, aquatic ecology, limnology, fish ecology, wetland ecology, water
quality, biogeochemistry, and paleoecology. We find collaborative
opportunities in addressing problems of management and restoration of
aquatic ecosystems. Utah State University is Utah’s land-grant university
with a student body of over 24,000 in 42 departments and 8 academic
colleges. USU is well situated for research on streams, rivers, lakes,
reservoirs, wetlands, and their catchments, which span desert to alpine
environments. The main campus is located in Logan, nestled against the Bear
River Range in scenic Cache Valley. This is a semi-rural mountain basin
with a population of 120,000 and nearby ski resorts, lakes, rivers, and
mountains providing many recreational opportunities.

Precisely because we're in the same boat, we should be glad that not
everyone is standing on the same side
