Staff Update

Debbie Bowen was promoted to information technology and business manager from information specialist. She will offer information technology support, manage databases and business processes, provide administrative support to the director, and coordinate planning for events and conferences. Bowen has worked for Minnesota Sea Grant for 11 years.

Minnesota Sea Grant is a partner on the project, “Duluth Residential Stormwater Reduction Demonstration Project for Lake Superior Tributaries.” Valerie Brady, research coordinator, is facilitating coordination of the $167,400 grant from Minnesota Pollution Control Agency/US Environmental Protection Agency to the City of Duluth, NRRI, Minnesota Sea Grant, South St. Louis Soil and Water Conservation District, and the Minnesota Conservation Corps. The project is designed to demonstrate the effectiveness of technologies such as rain gardens, rain barrels, and cisterns to reduce stormwater runoff in residential areas.

Anne Kapuscinski, fisheries and biotechnology extension educator, was one of five recipients of the international Society for Conservation Biology's Distinguished Service Award for 2008. Kapuscinksi will be honored in July for her "extraordinary contributions to conservation research, teaching, and conservation policy, particularly related to the effects of biotechnology policy on aquatic species."

Sharon Moen was promoted to science writer from editor. She will continue to prepare news releases, fact sheets, and articles for external audiences, including stories in the Seiche, and on Minnesota Sea Grant's Web site.
