For Eugene Braig, aquatic ecosystems expert (and guitar hero), it’s all about being in tune.  Photo credit: Ken Chamberlain.

Eugene Braig has a passion for water — for Ohio’s ponds, rivers, lakes and streams; for the myriad things that call it home, from yellow perch to pickerelweed, smallmouth bass to microscopic plankton; and for making sure all its parts are in tune.

As aquatic ecosystems program director for The Ohio State University’s College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES), Braig keeps a busy schedule sharing his expertise with, among others, pond owners, agency workers, people who live along streams, and officers in homeowners’ associations tasked with managing their lakes.  Read more about Braig's passion for water, outreach and guitar in the CFAES Engagement Story written by Kurt Knebusch.
