Meet our regular contributors and blog editors. Many of our posts come from biologists and scientists across our region, as well as from partners. You’ll see their photos and intros on individual posts.
Catherine Gatenby is a tap-dancing biologist turned communications coordinator for our fisheries program. She grew up in Minnesota surrounded by lakes and rivers and music–everything her family did involved music, dancing, fishing or swimming. Some day she plans to write about a real “river dance.” See her posts.
