Science Explained
She studied animals and their behaviors to help improve their environment. What seems most obvious now about polluting the waters was not obvious until she did something about it. Since she spent most of her time outside, she realized that the animals did not look healthy. She did research on the waters/animals and thought that she should help to clean ponds and streams.

First, she was an instructor of zoology at Mount Holyoke College. She then became an Assistant Professor of zoology in 1914 and finally became a professor of zoology in1918. She wrote three books-
-"Field Book of Animals in winter"-1839
