Currently I am a community outreach intern at the Glen Helen Nature Preserve. My employer’s mission is to bring exposure of the wonders and importance of nature to those in the community. My role involves creating avenues for community members to participate within the Glen and its facilities such as the Raptor Center and the Outdoor Education Center. I am also taking on an independent project that makes scientific research publicly available. This internship fits my educational goals because as a junior and environmental science major I am given a different perspective on how to communicate scientific and nature related activities to the community.
