We caught up with volunteer, supporter, and Creek Watcher Mike Marcell
Date: June 9, 2021
Time: 11:30am (just after returning from the weekly morning sample run!)
Location: Charleston Waterkeeper HQ
HP: Why do you choose to support Charleston Waterkeeper?
MM: I’ve managed to be on the water most of my life and I know the importance of clean water and protecting the environment. This is a way for me to pursue my interests, while supporting an energetic & fun organization! I really like that this is a science-based organization and that the data is collected regularly and put to good use to make important changes in the community. I love that it is a small group of dedicated individuals!
HP: What is your favorite way to enjoy clean water?
MM: I have been kayaking for many years
HP: What is your favorite waterway in Charleston?
MM: That is a tough one and I do love all of them for different reasons, but the Ashley River is special to me and I am so thankful of all of the work Charleston Waterkeeper is doing to keep fighting to clean it up
HP: Tell us something interesting we might not know?
MM: During the pandemic, I learned how to edit video and audio tracks and put this skill to use for Charleston Waterkeeper’s Creek Watcher training videos. I am also a former College of Charleston Professor. And something strange that people might not know is I really like statistics.
