Increasing water demand and reduced supplies are stressing communities and ecosystems. We train the next generation of talented, diverse students to solve challenges at the interface of water and ecology, or "ecohydrology". Our faculty and classes prepare students with cutting-edge skills and scientific knowledge needed to solve the most pressing water issues in Nevada and beyond.
