Meet Our Monitors: Kelly Fleming

Where do you monitor? Menomonee River at Lime Kiln Park.

How long have you been monitoring? Since the 2014 season.

Why do you monitor? Rivers are the blood of the earth. I will do anything and everything I can to ensure that they are healthy and happy.

What is the craziest or most interesting thing you have seen when monitoring? (The craziest most interesting thing I DID): When I was monitoring in West Bend, I actually went swimming in water over my head to get samples for biotic index and I LOVED IT! (The most interesting thing I’ve SEEN): The awesome limestone beds at Lime Kiln Park!

Any other comments? Most people usually assume I am doing it for a class in college, but I am proud to say I do it just because I care so much about our water.

Site Captain: Mitchell Kulis

This is Mitchell’s second year as a site captain at UWM Park ‘n’ Ride. We asked him “Why are you a site captain?” and his response was “To give back to the rivers I love!” Thank you for all of your work!
