Michigan Sea Grant College Program welcomes Chiara Zuccarino-Crowe as a new Michigan State University (MSU) Outreach Specialist. She will work collaboratively regionwide to enhance partnerships among the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL), national and regional Sea Grant programs and MSU Extension. She will assist in associated program planning, evaluation and coordinating processes among this network of partners to connect stakeholders with needed Great Lakes science information.

“Chiara Zuccarino-Crowe’s work experiences with NOAA, nonprofits, educational programming and her science background in biology, fisheries and wildlife make her an excellent choice to help us develop this new position,” said Dr. Heather Triezenberg, Program Leader for Michigan Sea Grant with MSU Extension.

Zuccarino-Crowe is based in Ann Arbor at GLERL, but also will spend time at the Michigan Sea Grant’s MSU Extension office on campus in East Lansing.
