Katherine Henning awarded IDEA Grant

Katherine Henning, a research assistant in Dr. Jeroen Ingels’ Meiolab at the FSUCML, was awarded an IDEA grant by Florida State University to take sediment samples from the Fenholloway and the Econfina rivers this summer. These samples are necessary to continue monitoring the health of the Fenholloway after the Cellulose Mill in Perry, FL relocated its wastewater pipeline to a location closer to the coast.She and her team will be holding community outreach events in Perry and Wakulla, FL in collaboration with the local public libraries to educate the community about their research on the Fenholloway. The Meiolab members feel it is important for the community to be able to access information about current issues that are important to them. The events will be on July 22nd at 4 pm in Wakulla, and on the July 28th at 7 pm in Perry. They encourage any members of each community to attend!
