“We found that invasive species plant chemistry, or at least solutions that mimicked invasive species plant chemistry, more negatively impacted our native frogs compared to the non-native frogs. This was particularly true when we exposed frogs to both invasive plant chemistry and also road salts,” said Meindl. With human population still on the rise, road salt is likely not the only human-caused impact to ecosystems, a problem we face moving forward. How have these changes in ecosystem chemistry impacted amphibians? Which is why Meindl will continue his research to look for solutions in an ever-changing world. VESTAL (WBNG) — Binghamton University’s Nature Preserve has been the location of an interesting study focusing on wetland ecosystems. “So in all likelihood negative impacts are going to get worse before they can get better. So we need to change the ways that we’re interacting with natural landscapes to limit the damage,” said Meindl. Though invasive species are an issue, a large portion of the problem comes from road salt. Finding alternatives to salt, like beet juice, is a start. Wetlands in particular can be susceptible to human-caused disturbances and chemical contamination too,” Visiting Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies George Meindl. “What we focus on are the impacts of road salt runoff and also the impacts of invasive species,” he says. “Climate is changing, road salts are being introduced into environments, excessive pesticides, herbicide and fertilizer use, and agricultural landscapes are impacting native communities. So increasing the complexity of studies are really important. Understanding how multiple stressers can interact to effect natural ecosystems,” said Meindl.

Facebook228Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Thurston County Public Health and Social ServicesKeylee Marineau is smart, and funny—and she’s been working with the unsheltered population for close to ten years, ever since she was a contracted therapist for Partners in Prevention Education. Her experience at Rosie’s Place working with youth and young adults experiencing homelessness has given her a broad perspective. 40 percent of young people on the street identify as LGBTQ and most give their number one reason for being homeless as either being kicked out of their home, or feeling unsafe in their home. “That’s not a problem the County can solve alone.”“’Solving’ the problem of homelessness goes way beyond finding housing for people,” she explained. “Getting people off the street touches on all kinds of issues, and requires all kinds of partners. It’s about lack of affordable housing. It’s about mental health. It’s about homophobia, childhood traumas, and racism. It’s about health inequities—the availability of care, and systems inequities. It’s about chemical dependency. There is really no part of our culture that doesn’t impact this population. The problem is societal, and cultural—and so the solutions also have to be societal, and cultural. We will all have to work together.”As the Homeless Prevention Coordinator, Keylee is charged with working toward four overarching goals:Prevent homelessness before it happensIdentify those people who are without homesRespond to those unsheltered people with resourcesDevelop opportunities to develop affordable housingThe ultimate goal is to get unsheltered populations off the street and into affordable housing. To do this, Keylee represents the County by coordinating with all the partners and programs that are working on pieces of the problem. She’ll need to develop short and long-term goals, in collaboration with those partners, while engaging with the Thurston County community at large. The frustrations and hurdles are many, but Keylee is optimistic.“It’s not going to happen overnight,” she admitted. “I wish it could. But the bottom line is that we have incredibly active and caring organizations and program leaders across a broad sweep of the County, and we have lots of people in the broader community who want to help problem solve and find solutions.”It can be hard to get an accurate count of the homeless population because of the transient nature of the population. The current estimate is around 1000, but the actual count could be higher. The annual Point in Time census just took place on January 24th, so there will be updated numbers soon. While the numbers aren’t yet in for this year, we did see unprecedented turn out of community members wanting to volunteer. That is very hopeful for the future.Keylee’s currently reviewing the County 5-year Homelessness Plan and working with providers and the City of Olympia to develop next steps. She wants to engage with the broader community too. “I want to hear what innovative solutions people have in mind. The County wants to do everything it can to help, not only because these are community members that need our help, but because part of our mission is to acknowledge and address health inequities. The recent impacts of the Federal shutdown nation-wide are a good reminder that many more people are just one bad situation away from ending up on the streets themselves.”Regardless of the complexities of the problem, Thurston County is lucky to have Keylee’s experience and engagement focused on finding solutions.
