The Society for Freshwater Science announced Lucinda Johnson as a 2020 Fellow. Johnson is associate director and leader of water research at the Natural Resources Research Institute, University of Minnesota Duluth. She served as president of the Society from 2010 - 2011.

“SFS Fellows are those who have led, shaped, and inspired the field of freshwater science,”said Dr. Amy Rosemond, president of the Society. “These scientists have been recognized for game-changing contributions to our field. They have pushed the boundaries of freshwater science in research, teaching, policy, and management and have advanced our understanding in these areas. They have also built and supported networks of scientific collaboration, increasing the capacity and reach of our science. All of our work is stronger as a result of their contributions.”

This is the third year of the Fellows program and each class of Fellows is chosen by past Fellows.The Fellows will be formally recognized and will receive their medal during the Society for Freshwater Science’s annual meeting in a plenary session scheduled for Thursday, June 11 from 9-11 a.m .
