BUDGET REDUCTIONS FOR FY2012
Tom Hinckley writes, "Please find online the required budget reductions, additions, and net budget cuts for FY 2012. If there is (or was) a silver lining, it is the contrast between what we anticipated in mid-to late-winter 2011 and what the actual cut was. We were thinking 13.5 vs. 4.3% and we did not know how much or little ABB we would receive.  Obviously for those taking cuts, there is not much of a silver lining.  We acknowledge your losses and are striving to help every School component function in the unfolding new ways of doing business.  We count on all to focus on those things that fit our core objective and that are simultaneously recognized in the new budget model."

CLARE RYAN IS DIRECTOR OF PROGRAM ON THE ENVIRONMENT
Lisa Graumlich writes, "I am pleased to report that Professor Clare Ryan has agreed to serve for a five-year term as Director of the Program on the Environment, beginning July 16, 2011, subject to approval by the Board of Regents. The search committee was impressed with Clare’s qualifications for this position and was very enthusiastic about her vision for the Program. In my discussions with Clare, we reviewed the important issues facing the Program now and in the future. I am confident that she will
provide excellent leadership and ask that you join me in supporting her efforts in what we expect will be times of great opportunities as well as challenges."

UW AWARDS TO SFR RESEARCH IN PHYSICAL,SOCIAL,BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES

SFR NEWS SPRING/SUMMER 2011 EDITION NOW ON LINE
See the Spring/Summer 2011 edition of the SFR News with articles on the Wind River Canopy Crane Research Facility's legacy of
research and education; ECOSEL, an ecosystem services auction mechanism; alumni news and School news highlights; and the Fiscal Year 2010 Report to Contributors.

SFR FACULTY, STAFF, STUDENTS, ALUMNI PARTICIPATE IN MEETINGS/CONFERENCES
Michele Trudeau organized an SFR booth at the Intertribal Timber Council's (ITC) 35th Annual National Indian Timber Symposium, "Integrating Traditional Knowledge with Modern Management, " June 13-16, 2011 at the Black Bear Resort and Casino in Carlton, MN. (SFR was the only academic institution booth). SFR faculty and student participation in the meeting included Ernesto Alvarado, Brandon Ambrose, Chris Beatty, and Laurel James. (Laurel, along with Adrian Leighton (faculty member at Salish-Kootenai College) will be co-chairing ITC's research subcommittee.) SFR alums participating included Nancy (Allison) Eldridge (MS 2001, BS 1994), Colin Hardy (MFR 1983), Faline Haven (BS 1995), Larry Mason (retired SFR staff member) (MS 1999, BS 1997), Don Motanic (BS 1978), Stephanie Peterson-Martin (BS 2006), and Phil Rigdon (BS 1996).  During the meeting Larry received the Earle R. Wilcox Individual Achievement Award from the Intertribal Timber Council (Wilcox was a BS 1938 alum). Also participating was UW Department of Chemical Engineering's Dan Schwartz, PI on the American Indian Studies Program, College of Engineering,and SFR joint IGERT on Bioresources.
Grad student Kevin Ceder presented at the Western Mensurationists meeting, held June 19–21, 2011 in Banff, Alberta,. His
topic was "Gazing Downward: Understory growth and yield," Western Mensurationists is a group of academics, researchers, industry and agency foresters, consultants, and graduate students from across the western U.S. and Canada. Writes Kevin, "This year’s meeting, due to location and restricted travel funding, was attended by approximately 60 people primarily from Canada. Presentations ranged from new techniques for sampling biomass and fuels in trees, to growth model assessments and validation, to methodologies for validatating carbon inventories for certification. There were several presentations focusing on boreal forest modeling, which has unique challenges that I had not been exposed to. My presentation discussing the use of dynamic model systems to predict changes in understory vegetation was well received and generated much discussion. My thanks go out to SFR funding that helped make the trip possible."

FINAL REPORT OF NWEF JUNE MEETING
Forum leader Brian Boyle writes, "We are pleased to provide the final report of the June 15-16, 2011, meeting of the Northwest Environmental Forum along with the presentations, streaming video of proceedings, critical support documents, and relevant research work. You can download these documents at http://www.nwenvironmentalforum.org/proceedings/forumSpring2011.html. This Forum was jointly presented by SFR and the WA Department of Natural Resources. WA DNR, in response to Washington State Engrossed Substitute House Bill 2541 (effective June 10, 2010), intends to carry out a demonstration forested watershed services market project in 2011-12.  Our June 2011 Northwest Environmental Forum served as a launch event for this initiative.
We especially thank WA Commissioner of Public Lands Peter Goldmark and WA DNR Director of Policy and Government Relations Craig Partridge.  We also thank our 2011 financial supporters, whose commitment provided for number of attendees as well as support services for the Forum. They are: Cascade Land Conservancy, Ecotrust, Forest Capital Partners, LLC, Green Diamond Timber Company, Hancock Timber Resource Group, Longview Timber Corporation, Merrill & Ring, Inc., Plum Creek Timber Company, Inc., Port Blakely Timber Company, UW School of Forest Resources, Washington Forest Protection Association, WA Department of Natural Resources, Weyerhaeuser Company Foundation, and Weyerhaeuser Family Foundation You can contact Craig Partridge, craig.partridge@dnr.wa.gov, or me, bboyle@u.washington.edu, with your comments and advice, which we welcome for a planned November follow up meeting."

NEW SPONSORED RESEARCH PROJECTS MAY 2011
"Biocontrol and fungicide efficacy/Cylindrocarpon spps in containerized Douglas-fir seedlings"; PI: Bob Edmonds; sponsor: WA Commission on Pesticide Registration; amount: $11,000

The research newsletter for June 2011 is now available online. Writes Sally Morgan, "In this issue, you will find news you should be aware of in managing your budgets, and changes in SAGE, and well as details on the awards and proposals."

NORTHWEST SCIENCE JOURNAL FOCUSES ON PRAIRIE/OAK ECOSYSTEMS
Jon Bakker writes, "The 24 papers in the May 2011 issue of Northwest Science summarize research and management presented at a 2010 meeting convened by the Cascadia Prairie-Oak Partnership, a collaboration focusing on the prairie/oak ecosystems of the Willamette Valley-Puget Trough-Georgia Basin ecoregion.  SFR faculy authors include Jon Bakker and Darlene Zabowski, and affiliate faculty Peter Dunwiddie; grad student Rachel Mitchell; and alums Mitchell Almaguer-Bay (BS 2003); Connie Harrington (PhD 1984); Josh Hegarty (BS 2008); Mason McKinley (MFR 2002, BS 1997); and Carson Sprenger (MS 2006)."

REVISED SFR RESEARCH PROPOSAL POLICY
Tom Hinckley has provided a new policy statement with regard to researchproposal approvals within SFR. He writes: "Although our endowments aredoing better, our overall budget is not, and our average rate of indirectcost recoveries from sponsored research has slipped from just above 10.5to less than 10 percent (an unacceptable trend), and the furtherapplication of ABB to research in the near future (likely FY 2013, July 1,2012–June 13, 2013) will further strain our declining resources." Read thecomplete text of the proposal policy on line."

CHANGE IN UW PROCESS REGARDING SEPARATION LEAVE
Bev Anderson writes, "Effective July 1, 2011, the UW has changed its process for recovering and charging separation leave for benefits eligible classified staff, professional staff, and librarians. The term 'separation leave' refers to payments made to employees for accumulated annual leave at the time of separation and accumulated sick leave at the time of retirement or death (valued at 25 percent of the ending balance). It does *not* apply to sick and annual leave used in the normal course of employment, the Annual Attendance Incentive Program, Compensatory Time payments, and Pay in Lieu of Notice for Layoff. Beginning July 1, 2011, lump sum separation leave payments will be charged to a central UW budget instead of to individual department budgets. This new process is funded by a modest increase in the fringe benefit load rate that is charged against
classified and professional staff and librarian salaries. This change will eliminate unanticipated separation leave payouts, which are especially difficult with sponsored project budgets."
