|Summer College Session and Internships
We hosted twenty four college students this summer for five weeks of ecology courses. We had the honor of facilitating and supporting the six professors as they equipped these students with knowledge and skills that will serve them as they seek future degrees and careers.
Our interns (pictured above: Rocio, Cat and Mark) excelled and contributed over 1,000 hours while also learning valuable skills in habitat restoration.
Robert continues to offer special CEO tours on the FIRST and THIRD Thursdays of each month at 5:00pm.
Next one is October 2.
