Beth Rose Middleton Manning recalls being elated watching the Eklutna River in Alaska flowing freely after a dam was removed. The University of California, Davis, Native American studies professor had a similar feeling upon learning she received a 2022 Andrew Carnegie Fellowship for her research on dam removal and land restoration.
She is one of 28 scholars, journalists and authors awarded the fellowship, which carries a $200,000 stipend. The Carnegie Corporation of New York announced the fellowships today (April 26).
