Inside the Institute
R. Patrick Bixler Joins University of Oregon Faculty

BixlerDr. Patrick Bixler, University Fellow at the Pinchot Institute, recently relocated to Eugene, Oregon to join the faculty of the Ecosystem Workforce Program in the Institute for the Sustainable Environment at the University of Oregon. As Faculty Research Scientist, he will focus on the intersection of ecology, economy, and governance across a range of issues relevant to forest disturbance and western public lands management. Of particular concern will be community and collaborative responses to mountain pine beetle outbreaks in the context of climate change, and local consequences of wildfire suppression policies and strategies in large wildfires. Patrick intends to offer courses in Environmental Policy, Planning, and Management as well as Society and Environment. He will be continuing his affiliation with the Pinchot Institute as a University Fellow, working with Brian Kittler, Western Regional Director, on an analysis of the USFS Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program.
