Q&A with Susan Nelson

On Monday, July 25th, in Brooklyn Center, campers met Susan Nelson, an educator for the West Mississippi Watershed Management Commission. She talked about how the landscape at River Park, helps protect the water next to it in the Mississippi River. Susan is an Environmental Scientist and Botanist with Wenck Associates. I asked her a few questions to learn more:

Q: What do you do for your job?  
A: I help keep stormwater clean.

Q: What do you like best about your job?  
A: Preventing pollution of lakes and rivers.

Q: What is your favorite thing about water?  
A: It tastes so good when I’m thirsty.

Q: What is your favorite place on the Mississippi River?  
A: Itasca State Park, where the Mississippi River begins.

Q: What do you think people should know about water or that might surprise them about water?
A: Because water cycles between the Earth and the sky, I could be drinking the same water that my great, great grandmother drank a long time ago.

-Thanks for the tour Susan!
