  • Biography
  • &nbsp; &nbsp; <p align=left><strong>Reed Green</strong> has been a member of NALMS since 1987. He has been with the USGS Arkansas Water Science Center since 1989 as Hydrologist (Limnologist) conducting a variety of reservoir and watershed studies. Prior to that, he worked with the USACE at Waterways Experiment Station (now ERDC) from 1986-1989 in their Aquatic Plant Control Research Program. He holds a B.S. and M.S. in Botany (1982 and 1985, respectively) and a Ph.D. in Biology (Limnology, 1998) from the University of Arkansas. Reed’s project work with the USGS deals mostly with watershed hydrology and reservoir limnology and he has authored or co-authored over 35 USGS or USACE reports, journal papers, etc. His current project is drafting a new chapter in the USGS National Field Manual – <em>Lakes and Reservoirs: Guidelines for Study Design and Sampling of Water, Bottom Material, and Biological Components</em>. Reed is an adjunct faculty member at the U of A in Little Rock mentoring undergraduate and graduate students and is a part-time instructor for special-topic courses such as Phytoplankton Ecology, Phytoplankton Identification and Use as Bioindicators, and currently teaches General Botany. In his spare time, Reed likes to identify and enumerate phytoplankton samples (studied under Rick Meyer and most recently mentored by Russ Rhodes) and dabbles with lake management (pro bono), helping friends out with their water-quality issues. He’s currently assisting a local POA’s lake manager and the POA in diagnosing conditions in some of their troubled lakes. When Reed is not on the softball field, coaching youth baseball or basketball, in the vegetable garden, teaching night classes at the local university, or leading a men’s class on Sunday morning, you can find him on his fishing kayak recording Secchi disk depths and depth profiles, mapping lake-bottom features and vegetation, while sampling native centrarchids using a variety of single-seine necton samplers.</p> &nbsp;

  • Summary
  • Jason completed his master’s from SUNY Oneonta, where he received one of the first Master of Science degrees in Lake Management. While working on his degree, Jason closely studied Hatch Lake and Bradley Brook Reservoir to better understand the physical, chemical and biological characteristics of both basins. After completing his research he developed a management plan to improve both lakes focusing on weed and algae control, fisheries enhancement, septic system reform and nutrient management. Prior to graduate school, Jason received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology from Cazenovia College in Upstate New York. He worked on numerous lakes throughout New York State including Lake Ontario, Cayuga Lake, Otsego Lake and Onondaga Lake. While working on these lakes, Jason sharpened his environmental monitoring skills and developed his passion for lake management.

  • Chris Mikolajczyk has been a Senior Aquatic Scientist for the past 15 years for Princeton Hydro, LLC, a water and wetland resource firm located in New Jersey. Prior to that, Mr. Mikolajczyk spent nearly 9 years managing an environmental water and wastewater laboratory. Mr. Mikolajczyk is also currently certified as a NALMS Certified Lake Manager, a duty that sees him manage New Jersey’s two largest public recreational waterbodies on a day-to-day basis. Mr. Mikolajczyk possesses an Associate’s Degree in Ecology and Environmental Technology (Limnology) from Paul Smiths College, as well as Bachelors and Masters Degrees from Rutgers University in Geography. In both programs at Rutgers University, Mr. Mikolajczyk focused on water quality issues, as well watershed land use planning. “If I am elected to the position of Region II Director, my focus will be to gain more exposure for NALMS with regards to other organizations of similar missions, as well as with municipal organizations here in the lower northeast. I personally feel that too often lake management is overlooked with regards to the open space and public spaces that possess these waterbodies. In addition, I feel that further education to these agencies is necessary, not only for proper lake management, but to reveal how property values, as well as revenue sources can increase based upon the perceived water quality. This education can begin with NALMS.”

  • &nbsp; &nbsp; <p align=justify>Frank Wilhelm (PhD) attended his first NALMS meeting in Banff, AB during graduate school at the University of Alberta. After a 2-yr post doc in New Zealand he joined the faculty at Southern Illinois University as a limnologist. In 2007 he moved to the Department of Fish and Wildlife Sciences at the University of Idaho where he is an associate professor teaching undergraduate and graduate courses in limnology. His research is broad, primarily focused on lentic ecosystems. Lake management and remediation from blooms of harmful cyanobacteria have been a recent focus for him and students he supervises. He regularly attends and participates in NALMS meetings. In 2011, he served on the organizing committee for the meeting in Spokane. He is a NALMS CLP and currently serves as the region 10 director. Frank is also active in the Washington Lakes Protection Association for which he has served on the board since 2008 and has chaired the student scholarship committee since 2009. He also works closely with homeowner’s associations and incorporates service-learning in his courses to provide students with real-world experiences. He has taught workshops in southern Ecuador, to state agencies and at a NALMS meeting.</p> &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; <p align=justify>“Our expanding human population is on a direct collision course with the finite supply of freshwater that sustains us. NALMS is uniquely positioned to make a difference in how we view, manage and remediate water resources given the broad background and expertise of our members from those interested in lakes to professionals and academics. Collectively, we must be passionate and deliberate about the pursuit of NALMS’ mission to ensure the protection of our aquatic resources. I believe the success of NALMS depends on an engaged and enthusiastic leadership team that provides a suite of opportunities in which members can participate. A realistic budget, increasing membership, outreach and engagement are perennial issues for the society to which I will contribute my energy. I would also like to increase our mentoring program to not only foster professional ties among young and old(er), but also to enhance the collegial fabric and sense of community in our society. I would be honored to serve NALMS as President-Elect.”</p></br> <hr>
