About Me:

I primarily work with the Wetland Science Group on Illinois Department of Transportation projects. My research interests include wetland communities and sustainable agriculture. I initiated and coordinated a schoolyard wetland project at Dater Montessori Elementary School completed September 2012. Students were able to assist with the wetland construction and there were five stations set up where they learned about aspects of wetland ecology and water issues. This wetland will be used as a teaching aid for students at the school. Partners included US Forest Service, US Fish and Wildlife Service, Kiwanis, Friends of Dater Montessori Nature Center, Hamilton County Park District, as well as private donors and community volunteers.
