|Introducing our 2012 Summer Interns
From: Stillwater, Minnesota
Graduate of: Northwestern College
Studied: Biology and Biblical Studies/Theology
Hello all, my name is Aaron Marks and I am from Stillwater Minnesota. I went to Northwestern College for Biology and Biblical Studies- Theology. I graduated two years ago in May of 2010. I have been doing Marketing and sales for the last two years and woke up one day and realized that I was doing was exactly what I didn't want to do with my life. I love the outdoors and want to really utilize the tools and skill sets that I have learned through my college and Au Sable. I want to network and really get a chance to meet someone who might be able to help me achieve my career goals. It has been a privilege and an honor to intern here for the summer. Just chasing the dream from Minnesota to Arizona and up the pacific coast - hopefully, this internship will help me catch up to it.

Rachel Nypaver From: Oak Harbor, Washington
Attending: Humboldt State University, Arcata, CA
Studying: Wildlife Biology
I'm currently a junior at Humboldt State University majoring in Wildlife with emphasis in Vertebrate Ecology and Conservation Biology. My ultimate dreams are to work with and save wild tigers and to travel to Africa to study its amazing fauna. I would love to join the Peace Corps after my degree so that I may travel the world and use my passion for animals to help protect and restore wild places and create a promising future for all that inhabit them. I am COMPLETELY available for internships and hire next summer ;)

Recently graduated, I am enjoying the opportunity to be a part of PRI's mission to restore Whidbey Island's native prairies and to further the associated research.
