About Heidi Steltzer

Heidi is on the faculty of the Biology Dept., Fort Lewis College, Durango, CO (formerly of the Natural Resource Ecology Laboratory, CSU).  She is assessing the biological consequences of earlier snowmelt as a result of desert dust deposition in alpine landscapes.  For her fellowship she collaborated with the Mountain Studies Institute, Silverton, CO to create visualizations of Rocky Mountain alpine landscape seasonality in 2020 based on continued high levels of dust deposition to share with local residents for use in decision-making.
