It's never easy to say goodbye to staff who have devoted their time, energy, and passion to MCBP projects. And it's even harder when they are such incredible people. This month, we have to part with not one, not two, but three wonderful scientists. Arianna Russo and Brianna Fragata are our two Chesapeake Conservation Corps members for the 2018-2019 service year. Throughout their time at MCBP, they have worked on numerous projects such as anadromous fish monitoring, water quality sampling, oyster gardening, environmental education, and more! For their capstone projects, Arianna worked on the source reduction campaign "Protect Our Sand & Sea" and Brianna worked on the Greys Creek Nature Preserve.
During her summer internship at MCBP, Carly has been instrumental to helping kick-start the wetland assessment program. She has also worked on projects such as anadromous fish monitoring, terrapin surveys, and water quality sampling.
All three of these amazing scientists have been wonderful assets to MCBP and will be sorely missed. We wish them the best as they continue their work in the environmental field!
