Place Meet Purpose

You may not have thought of it this way, but snow is a storage system– poised to be released back into our streams and groundwater. 

Environmental studies major Peter Bouchard is measuring the impact of a changing climate and changing population on snow hydrology. Getting the field site ready and collecting data, he’s filling a gap by doing this study. But more importantly, he’s paired his place with his purpose. “My main goal is to be impactful.”
