In April our Spiritual Enrichment programming is hosted by our own Green Team.
Today we will hear a presentation from Jill Kostel, Senior Environmental Engineer with The Wetlands Initiative.
Importance and performance of wetlands
Jill Kostel, Ph.D., is a Senior Environmental Engineer at the Wetlands Initiative (TWI), a non-profit in Illinois that designs, restores, and creates wetlands. TWI innovates, collaborates, and employs sound science to improve water quality, habitat for plants and wildlife, and our climate. Jill is responsible for the development and implementation of projects that require expertise in engineering, ecosystem services, and environmental markets. She is the project manager for TWI’s “Smart Wetlands” program, which advances the use of small, farm-based tile-treatment wetlands to naturally reduce nutrient runoff in tile drainage. Jill received her B.S. in Civil Engineering from Ohio Northern University and her M.S. and Ph.D. in Environmental Engineering from Northwestern University.
