Donna Ball was featured in the Padilla Bay Newsletter, winter 2002-03 issue. Padilla Bay is a National Estuarine Research Reserve managed by the Washington State Department of Ecology. Donna is monitoring the sediment level at sites where the non-native Spartina salt marsh grass has been eradicated, as well as sites where it is still growing. She received a Padilla Bay research fellowship to help fund her study.
