Siech Takes Science beyond the Classroom

Katie Siech’s passion for the environment is apparent in everything she does.  Along with running the science laboratory at St. Louis Community College-Wildwood, she teaches biology classes and serves as the Science Club adviser. When she’s not assisting students on campus, Siech enjoys advocating for the environment and promoting the field of environmental science.  Siech recently had a unique opportunity to share her passion for the environment through two presentations. In addition to presenting research on water quality in the Meramec River to the Water Quality Technical Unit at the Upper Mississippi River Conservation Conference, Siech spoke with students at STLCC-Wildwood as part of the campus’ Earth Week celebration. During these presentations, she explained how agricultural sites along the river channel correlate to biotic communities. The data she presented was collected while working as a graduate assistant with Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville and as a fisheries division assistant with the Missouri Department of Conservation.  Although Siech’s presentation covered a number of topics, the main takeaway focused on the interconnectedness of organisms in the environment.Katie Siech’s passion for the environment is apparent in everything she does.
