Getting to Know Our New FLOW Volunteers
By Jill Lemon

As the FLOW Program Manager, I want to thank the dedicated volunteers that make its work possible. Week after week, school trip after school trip, our volunteers bring their commitment and passion, acting as leaders for others to Follow and Learn about the Ocean and Wetlands. This year we welcomed some new volunteers.

Kyoko Kremp comes to FLOW with a medical background and experience with microscopes. Her attention to detail has raised all of our skills, and her thirst for knowledge and probing questions inspires learning.

Daniel Fillet is a student at Mater Dei High School and was looking for volunteer opportunities. He spent his summer Fridays at FLOW volunteering and learning about the environment and science; experiences that have prepared him for his academic career and future.

Linda Fillet introduced son Daniel to the FLOW program. As a local resident, they knew of the Bolsa Chica wetlands and wanted to engage and learn more. Linda was committed to providing transportation for Daniel but developed into a resourceful volunteer for FLOW even after Daniel returned to school. Isabella Suarez is a student and California State Water Resources Control Board employee who engages in the FLOW program, taking a day from her work and studying. FLOW allows her to pursue a connection to her future and give back to the community at the same time.

Please join me in welcoming and thanking these new members to the Amigos family as they allow us to continue our mission of conservation and education.
