February Volunteer of the Month: Monica Backs

Monica Backs is our volunteer of the month for February!

Monica got involved with FLOW during a FLOW sponsored capstone project at OSU!  She is the lead for our Carmack Woods restoration. Carmack Woods is a forested wetland located between Carmack Lots 5 and 6 on Ohio State’s west campus. This area was considered for a parking lot expansion and with Monica’s lead it is a thriving green space! 

Monica is an OSU graduate and works full-time as a water resources engineer (FE) at MS Consultants. Outside of work she loves to watch true crime, go running, and volunteer with FLOW. Monica’s favorite FLOW events are tree plantings because she loves playing in the dirt.

Thank you Monica for your passion and dedication to The Olentangy watershed. FLOW couldn’t accomplish what we do without volunteers like you!
