University of Wyoming student Emma Temples, a senior from Longview, Wash., was chosen as one of two student representatives for the Central Rockies Society for Ecological Restoration (CeRSER).

Temples, also a member of UW’s Restoration Outreach and Research (ROaR!) organization, was nominated for the CeRSER position by her fellow ROaR! club members. She was nominated after the Colorado State University and University of Colorado-Boulder chapters agreed that a CeRSER student representative should be chosen from UW.

“I am honored to be selected to represent not only UW, but also the other student chapters of CeRSER,” Temples says. “This position will further my experience and knowledge working in the field of ecological restoration.”

Temples has been a member of ROaR! since her sophomore year. She served as the vice president during the 2017-18 school year and now serves as the president of the organization.

In addition to her club involvement, Temples is a double major in energy resource management and development, and environment and natural resources. She is minoring in business, soil science, and reclamation and restoration ecology.

CeRSER is an organization focused on the restoration and reclamation of disturbed lands. For more information about CeRSER, visit

Much like CeRSER, UW ROaR! is a student organization focused on providing connections for students interested in reclamation and restoration of disturbed lands. Members have the opportunity to assist local organizations on projects such as the Laramie River Restoration project and Roger Canyon cleanup. For more information about ROaR!, visit
