The CMC Team is very sad to say goodbye to our friend and colleague, Dan Boward, who is retiring from Maryland Department of Natural Resources after a 34-year career in stream monitoring. Dan worked for the state of Maryland on surface water and benthic macroinvertebrate monitoring. Highlights of his career include:
In Dan’s own words, “Throughout my career, I was lucky enough to – at least occasionally – keep my toes in the water, so to speak. One of my favorite activities has been to stand in a freshwater stream, clipboard in hand, and wonder what fascinating critters lurk beneath the cobble. I’ve sampled streams with professionals and volunteers – from little kids to octogenarians – and almost every minute has been a joy.” Dan, we wish you the very best in your retirement! We know you will continue to the find the joy in exploring the natural world and we hope that you stay in touch with your fellow naturalists here in the Chesapeake watershed.
