Heartfelt thanks to Andrew Heiskary and his children Darlene and Steven for their thoughtful gift to Freshwater in honor of Andrew’s life and passion for Minnesota’s lakes, rivers, and clean water. Steven shared this message:
My father, Andrew Heiskary, passed away on November 23, 2018 at the age of 90. As a life-long fisherman, he enjoyed spending time on lakes and rivers and valued clean water. He was always interested in my work at the Pollution Control Agency and enjoyed learning what I was working on. So when it came time to consider where to dedicate a portion of his memorial, my sister, Darlene suggested the Freshwater Society, which I heartily endorsed and believe he would have supported as well.
