As the summer comes to an end, it's time to say farewell to our team of summer interns: Felysia Green, Alana Tollenaar, Kaitlin Holden, and Tony Shao.
This was Felysia's third summer working as the Conservation Intern with EALT. She spent the summer busily managing supplies and leading our summer interns and volunteers in the field to accomplish a great deal of stewardship and document species at several new conservation lands. Here is what she had to say about her 3rd year of experience:
Alana Tollenaar was new to the EALT summer team this year, working as the Conservation and Outreach Intern. She designed and led Canada 150 tours at our conservation lands, raised awareness at workshops and community events, and kept our social media platforms flowing with updates from our progress and events throughout the summer. Here is what Alana said about her summer internship:
This was Kaitlin Holden's first year with EALT, and she joined the team in mid-June as a Conservation and Outreach Intern. Kaitlin helped with many aspects, including field work, blog writing, raising awareness at workshops and events, and designed interpretive signs for one of our conservation sites. Here is what she had to say about her internship:
Tony Shao was a volunteer intern with EALT this summer, lending a helping hand on numerous field days, raising awareness at our Canada 150 events, and completing an independent project to improve wildlife habitat and visitor safety at Larch Sanctuary. Here is what Tony said about his volunteer experience:
Felysia, Alana, Kaitlin, and Tony all did an exceptional job of helping EALT further our conservation efforts, during our busiest time of year. The amount of field work and outreach accomplished this summer is a great feat our entire team - staff and volunteers alike - are hugely proud of.
On behalf of the entire EALT staff and volunteer team, we wish you all the very best in your studies and your future endeavors. Stay in touch!
