Vince has been instrumental in partnering with us in Monroe, coordinating the Monroe Wetland and the Lord’s Lake Restoration projects as well as annual Earth Day events. He invited our education team along on his water quality sampling route to learn about what scientists do to protect our waterways. This kind of partnership help us communicate about real-world applications of science, how humans interact with the environment, and potential careers in science. Vince helped kick off our Lawns to Lettuce program in Monroe, coordinating with Monroe High School’s Future Farmers of America students. as well as Jardinería con un Propósito, or Gardening with a Purpose, a class targeted to reach the prevalent Hispanic Population in Monroe. We are super grateful for Vince’s support!
