As an employee of Grande Cheese in Juda, Wisconsin, Bob learned about stream monitoring at a Grande-sponsored training in 2012. Since that time, Bob has been involved in stream monitoring through his role at Grande and as the Director of the Lower Sugar River Watershed Association. Not only has he monitored four different sites for five years in the Juda Branch, but he has also supported other teams of monitors and entered information into the data base. One critical aspect that allows ongoing monitoring to continue improving these watersheds is having other volunteers interested in water monitoring. Bob works with his fellow monitors to help them identify sites that personally interest them and works with DNR biologists to find sites that need attention. His never-ending passion for creating and keeping a healthy watershed is also evident when he engages in community outreach including student tours and presentations at events and meetings. Patrick Cardiff, Director of Manufacturing at Grande Cheese stated, "Bob exemplifies how an employee of a company should interact and support the community to help improve our natural resources."
