Amy Anderson, Executive Director, Selkirk Conservation Alliance

Selkirk Conservation Alliance: Regional threats to water quality and SCA’s work to protect it.

The Selkirk Conservation Alliance works to engage the public in southern Selkirk resource and land management issues through science, education, and economic diversity. In this presentation Amy Anderson will cover the basic threats to regional surface and groundwater quality in the Priest Lake basin. She will discuss point and non-point source pollution and current water quality issues, like invasive species and fish die offs, in Priest Lake and regional tributary streams. The presentation will also cover SCA’s pillar programs: Education, Scientific Research and Advocacy!

Amy Anderson is the new Executive Director of the Selkirk Conservation Alliance located in Priest River. Amy was raised on a small working farm in SE Iowa, but came west to study at University of Idaho, graduating in 2008. She has lived and worked in the Pacific Northwest for the past 23 years. During that time she has worked for several Inland Northwest tribes, including the Coeur d’Alene, Kalispel, Kootenai, Spokane, and Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, on their habitat restoration projects. Prior to joining SCA, she was the Environmental Programs Director for the Kootenai Environmental Alliance, including management of the Coeur d’Alene Lake Waterkeeper. Now, she leads SCA in their efforts to protect the natural resources of our beautiful southern Selkirk ecosystem.
