MAD associate Jenny Adkins was recently nominated for the position of Secretary with the Environmental Education Council of Ohio (EECO). She will be inducted as an officer at the annual conference to take place April 14 at the Maumee Bay State Park Lodge just east of Toledo. MAD Scientist Associates has long attended and presented at EECO conferences and we look forward to strengthening connections through Jenny’s participation as Secretary.
