In Memoriam:

Samantha Wysocki 
Project Ecologist

(August 14, 1992-January 4, 2018)

It is with great sadness that we share news of Samantha Wysocki’s passing. Samantha was the soul of our Aquatic Management Team for many years. She will be sorely missed. Our hearts ache for Cheryl, Rob, Melissa and all Sam loved. Please keep them in your thoughts and prayers.

Samantha obtained her B.S. from Westfield State University in 2014, wherein she studied Environmental Science and Geographic Information Systems. She took part in a research project for the Town of Russell, Massachusetts assessing the plant community at Russell Pond, of which she was a contributing author. From 2013 to 2014, Samantha was a research technician in the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station’s Invasive Aquatic Plant Program.  She conducted vegetative plant community assessments on lakes and ponds throughout Connecticut.

Over the years, Samantha has been involved in numerous community outreach programs and has participated at the NEAPMS, CCNR, and CIPWG symposiums. She also holds both a Connecticut-state boating license and a CT-state pesticide applicator license.
