Our Outreach Coordinator had a chance to chat with Amanda Williams, Public Outreach Specialist on the Chugach National Forest in Alaska.
My reflections of the last twelve weeks of the Mount Adams Institute (MAI) VetsWork Green Corps Program are that hard work can be fun with a good attitude and a few friends to share it with.
During these past 12 weeks regained and sharpened the skills I need to become a successful wildland fire fighter.
Congratulations to former Public Lands Stewards (PLS) Intern Robyn Reeder! She is the new Biotechnician at Conboy Lake National Wildlife Refuge. Our Outreach Coordinator Trevor was lucky enough to sit down and talk with Robyn about her new position and how PLS helped her achieve her goals.
In honor of Great Outdoors Month, our AmeriCorps Program Director Aaron Stanton shared this thrilling story of his rescue on the river. “In 2018 I had the good fortune to raft and kayak the Grand Canyon. The trip did not end the way I would have liked, but it still changed me.
It’s been a few weeks since the pack test and orientation. We have done a lot since the start and so far, it’s been a great experience with the crew. Everyone has been getting along and working hard each day.
I have just started here at the Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership, and I am already participating in so many projects and community events.
Working here in Alaska has opened my eyes to natures beauty. I feel like the learning experiences never stop. From learning about bears and how to stay safe around them, to how to stay safe on an airplane.
Working as a field technician for Lower Columbia Estuary Partnership in the MAI Vetswork program is my first experience in the natural resource field. I came into the internship not sure of what to expect other than hard work.
