Inside Driven to Discover: Megan’s Connection

November 2, 2018

It takes a village to do most things, and for the many discoveries that happen throughout the U of M, there’s a collective effort to support the research projects and all the many discoveries that happen here.

For Megan Weber, an educator at University of Minnesota Extension and the Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center (MAISRC), it’s the collaboration found at the U to preserve Minnesota’s lakes that makes her work possible. As she puts it:

“The very close connection and partnership between Extension and the MAISRC is a fundamental part of what has made this program so successful. MAISRC helps us prioritize what we teach our volunteers, and then we rely on Extension’s many connections to find natural resources volunteer programs and outreach opportunities across Greater Minnesota.”

We’ll continue sharing stories of how faculty and staff make discoveries possible throughout the year.
