Program and People News

The Aquatic Sciences Center is pleased to welcome Anne Moser and Carolyn Betz.

As ASC librarian, Anne Moser replaces JoAnn Savoy, who retired last year. For the past four years, Moser has managed and maintained the Web site for the Wisconsin Water Science Center of the USGS. Previously, she worked for the UW-Madison School of Library and Information Services and ran the special library of the award-winning Local Hazardous Waste Management Program for the Seattle regional area.

Carolyn Betz joins us as a new science writer. Betz will be assuming some of the former duties of John Karl, who has begun producing videos and exhibits about ASC research. Betz first launched her career as a Sea Grant fellow assisting the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science and Technology with hearings related to water and agricultural issues. For the past 23 years, she has worked in the Bureau of Watershed Management of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources where she specialized in lake management and nonpoint source pollution control efforts.

Hearty congratulations go out to Jim Lubner for recently marking 30 years of employment with the Wisconsin Sea Grant Program. As Sea Grant Education Coordinator and Water Safety Specialist, Lubner works from an office at Milwaukee’s Great Lakes WATER Institute and holds adjunct appointments in UW–Milwaukee’s Geosciences Department and Department of Curriculum and Instruction. In addition to receiving his PhD in biological sciences from UW-Milwaukee, he is a former middle school teacher who has been involved in informal and teacher education since 1978.

The Aquatic Sciences Center is the administrative home of the
University of Wisconsin Sea Grant Institute & University of Wisconsin Water Resources Institute.
