My name is Isaiah Kent-Schneider and I will be a junior at Drake University in the fall of 2017. I am from Chanhassen Minnesota and will be majoring in Environmental Science with a focus on Hydrology as well as Secondary Education. My passion for the environment developed through years of outdoor activity and a course I took my senior year of high school. Ever since, I looked to delve into understanding the natural cycles of the world and how they effect and are effected by humans. As a part of Dr. Levi’s lab I am assisting with projects monitoring the physical and chemical qualities of the streams in Chichaqua Bottoms Greenbelt and the Raccoon River.
