Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center (MAISRC)
Meet MAISRC's new Outreach Specialist, Meg Duhr
The Minnesota Aquatic Invasive Species Research Center is pleased to welcome Meg Duhr to the team as our first Outreach Specialist.
Meg spent much of her career with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in the remote Northwest Hawaiian Islands managing habitat and biology programs and battling island invasives of the plant, rodent, and avian varieties. Since 2017, Meg served as the Integrated Pest Management Specialist for the Mid-Columbia River National Wildlife Refuge Complex in Eastern Washington where she coordinated invasive species control across eight Refuges and two military properties. She has a B.A. in Women’s and Gender Studies from Macalester College and a B.S. in Wildlife Science from Oregon State University.
As our Outreach Specialist, Meg’s primary role will be to help translate research into action by serving as a bridge between MAISRC research and AIS managers, policymakers, and other stakeholders. This will include developing research summaries and white papers, facilitating workshops, stakeholder engagement for research translation, and presenting information to MAISRC's key audiences.
Meg joins us in the office on February 3, 2020. Welcome, Meg!
