About this Event
Translating scientific research to practical application is no easy feat, a task made more challenging when the application relies upon the efforts of multiple different audiences. The Ohio Coastal Training Program works to engage professionals ranging from the stormwater and construction industry, to natural resource managers, to private coastal property owners and communicate their role in safeguarding Ohio's most valuable natural resource: Lake Erie. This presentation will talk about how a background in biological sciences and wildlife research can influence a career in social science, communications, and conservation in action.

About the speaker: Emily Kuzmick is the Coastal Training Program (CTP) Coordinator for the ODNR Old Woman Creek National Estuarine Research Reserve, Lake Erie's only nationally designated research estuary. In her past five years as the Ohio CTP Coordinator, she has focused upon providing training and technical assistance to Lake Erie coastal decision-makers related to marine debris, nutrient and stormwater management, wildlife species monitoring, habitat restoration, and erosion control. She holds a Master's of Science in Environmental Studies and a Bachelor's in Environmental Biology, both from Ohio University. Her past research experience includes how different agricultural practices impact native desert wildlife, the feasibility of a desert succulent as a bioenergy feedstock in a changing climate, and the effects of marine debris on nesting sea turtles. Additional experience and interests include wildlife rehabilitation, nature photography, and teaching yoga.
