System-Wide Monitoring Program Coordinator
As the System-Wide Monitoring Program (SWMP) Coordinator, Hannah Ramage facilitates the Reserve’s mission to monitor and quantify short-term variability and long-term changes in water quality, meteorology and biological systems within the Reserve. Hannah grew up in Traverse City, Michigan. She received her bachelor’s degree in biology from DePauw University in 2011, and her master of science in integrated biosciences from University of Minnesota Duluth in 2017. She worked as an Aquatic Ecologist for the Aquatic Restoration and Research Institute conducting research on stream stormwater contaminates and juvenile salmon habitat-associations in Talkeetna, Arkansas. Her current research includes investigating environmental influence on larval and juvenile fish assemblages within the St. Louis River Estuary, with a focus on describing the relationship between aquatic vegetation metrics and fish species distribution. In her spare time, Hannah enjoys hiking, canoeing, photography and playing Ultimate Frisbee.
