Watershed Alliance Spotlight! Maya Dizack Leads a Sea Grant Amphibian Expedition: "Big Night!"
An incoming first year UVM student from Racine, Wisconsin. Maya's midwestern upbringing is often associated with corn cobs, cheese, and a strong football culture, though Lake Michigan has actually had the most profound influence on her life. From an early age, Maya participated in Water Action Volunteers (WAV), a program that teaches citizen scientists to monitor water quality and record data. In recent years, Maya has become increasingly interested in alpine vernal pools since these neat ecosystems can teach us a ton about the effects of climate change. Her introduction to "Big Night" (the early Spring mass migration of amphibians to vernal pools) started during the time she spent at the semester school Conserve, where the school grounds had so many vernal pools it was hard to not step on the abundant and quite active amphibians roaming about.
