Now that I have a few weeks of butterfly field work experience under my belt, I am beginning to spread my wings (butterfly pun sincerely intended) to conduct field work in areas outside of my main field site in Dinosaur National Monument. Since little is...

I recently had the chance to join Dinosaur National Monument staff in welcoming the Preserve America Youth Summit program to the Monument. The participants in the Youth Summit were middle and high school students from the Denver area who traveled to Dinosaur for two days...

On August 10, I helped with the Monarch Butterfly Habitat Hike and Tagging Workshop at Josie’s Cabin in Dinosaur National Monument. This event was intended to teach participants about monarch ecology and conservation, show people how we do monarch research, and gather lots of data.

The time to say goodbye has come. I purposively decided to write this blog at the end of my internship. I must admit, I am sad that this experience is ending. When it first started, I wanted time to pass me by, but now I...

What is going on everyone?! There are only two weeks left of my internship. I am extremely sad that it is coming to an end. The people have been amazing. The scenery has been amazing. The work has been amazing. Part of my park experience...

I began working at Dinosaur National Monument last week as the resource monitoring and science communication intern. My objective for this internship is to contribute to monarch butterfly research and to communicate this information with the general public. After spending my first two days getting...

What’s going on everyone! My time here in the KLGO is coming to end. I have about 3 weeks left, but there are a lot great things coming up. The last couple of weeks have been about organizing Latino Conservation Week events. Sticking to our...

Yesterday was my last field day at Joshua Tree National Park and it did not disappoint! I spent about seven hours in the park and each hour was different than the one before it. 

Early in the morning I took off with a JOTR Wildlife Technician,...

What’s going on everyone! I hope everyone reading this is having an amazing day. A recap on my week. The KLGO had Susan Bonfield come visit the park. She is the Director of Environment for the Americas. She came to one of my historical walking...

There are places that change you and that you will keep a piece of them close to your heart; Homestead is one of those places.  My last week here has been unexplainable. I’ve been catching up with different things before leaving and today I presented...

What’s going on everyone! Excuse me for the hiatus, but things in the KLGO have been hectic in a good way. I’ve been focusing on developing a historical tour that focuses on the “Women of the Klondike.” Remember our motto is “Go Big or Go Home,”...

Wow! I can’t believe my internship here at Cowpens and Kings Mountain is already over. The summer always goes by quick and I really wish I could have stayed at my internship just a few weeks longer. I will not forget all I have learned...

Ten weeks have passed. Time flies and I can’t believe my stay at Point Reyes National Seashore has ended. I had an incredible time and the summer of 2019 is now the best summer I have ever had.

Ten weeks have passed. The...

Sadly the time has come to say goodbye to the amazing people that I have had the privilege to spend time and work with. It has been an amazing experience to get exposed to the internal aspect of the National Park Service, especially having the...

One of the biggest things about the internship has been the exposure to wonderful people. My experience at Point Reyes National Seashore would not have been as incredible if it wasn’t for everyone I had the pleasure to meet and work with. The...

Today I was able to work at Valley Forge National Historical Park (Hopewell Furnace sister park) with their Natural Resources staff and Interns. They invited me along to help with a seasonal program they do with the Crayfish Corp. What is the Cray Fish Corp...

Today is my last day at Fort Sumter and Fort Moultrie National Historical Park. This summer has been very enriching and eye opening in a way that I could never have expected.

 

I’ve learned many lessons while being in Charleston. On the actual educational side, I’ve...
