Deven Lisac is a graduate from Dillingham High School and is currently attending the University of Alaska Fairbanks. I am going for my Bachelors of Art in Biological Sciences, to become a Marine Biologist. I love to spend time outside doing anything, from fishing, to snow-machining. This eleven week internship with UAF Bristol Bay Campus, mainly focused on water quality and water sampling for bacteria in the Nushagak Bay, and Squaw Creek.
Sidney Nelson is back at the campus as an environmental research aide! Sidney is an 18 year old high school graduate who is shooting to become an engineer. This year, he will mainly be working on his “isopod” project. The project’s purpose is to shed more light on how sensitive isopods are to temperature change. Also, he will be collecting water quality data from some of the local creeks, and transect data near the creeks in the Dillingham area, along with analyzing any sediment samples brought into the lab.
