The Sisters Science Club

We are a community based organization that strives to enhance science, math, and health in the schools and community through seven main areas.

CLICK ON ONE OF THE STARS on the image to the right & explore the club's activities.

Founded January 2011, the club is comprised of approximately 350 members - but there is no clubhouse, administration, or required annual dues. Rather, the club works by the community bringing volunteers and financial support to enhance the good ideas of the school's science teachers.

The club enjoys close support from Kiwanis, Rotary, The Roundhouse Foundation, The Sisters Garden Club, Energyneering Solutions, Saint Charles Medical Center, Cascades East Area Health Education Center (CEAHEC) and has been awarded grant support from the Oregon Community Foundation and the Meyer Memorial Trust.

Most importantly, numerous individuals see value in these programs and provide financial support through the Sisters School Foundation, a 501c3 organization. If you would like to join this effort, click here to reach our president!

The fifth presentation of the 2017-18 Frontiers in Science Monthly Symposium series in Sisters is titled "Undamming the Elwha: A River Revived," and is presented by Dr. Jerry Freilich, Ph.D, on Tuesday, February 27th.

 

Can dams and fish coexist? Is dam removal the best strategy to improve riparian environments? This is a complicated issue, and one worthy of our study.

Dr. Jerry Freilich was chief of research for Olympic National Park during the largest dam removals in U. S. history, a project that is now returning the Elwha River to its much wilder former life–often in unexpected ways. Click the picture to the left to learn more.


Dr. Freilich has devoted his life to research and science education throughout a long career with National Park Service. The planning for the Elwha River dam removals took decades; the actual work, completed in 2014, had taken several years, and the restoration of the river will flow far into the future.


Dr. Freilich will share the ongoing story of the Elwha–its turbulent history and emerging future, the effects of the dams on the ecosystem and the Lower Elwha Kallam Tribe, impacts on the local economy, and changes in the river’s delta on the Strait of Juan de Fuca
