I need to interview an expert on flood control, preferably someone with lots of knowledge of channelization and revegetation. Experts, please talk to me. I need an interview for my science project. Thanks

Hello oamigo18:

Welcome to Science Buddies. Great choice in looking here at Science Buddies for an expert in flood control. If you are unable to find someone at this site that is able to help you, I would suggest that you look for an environmentalist at your local community college or local college(s).

Hello oamigo18,
What are your questions? With all the professionals here, you should be able to get some of your questions answered.

Also, check with the local USGS office to see if someone there can help you. When you call or email them ask specific questions, rather than broad ones, and keep emails short. You may or may not get a response, but keep in mind that those people are busy and might not have the time to dedicate to a mentee.

Here are some resources for environmental topics with the Environmental Protection Agency

Here are more ideas on how to find a mentor:

Also, check with the local community college environmental or biology/ ecology program, there may be a college student or professor willing to mentor or help you. Good luck and let us know how it goes!
Always remain curious,
Sarah
