We’re so excited to welcome our two new interns, Cassandra and Alana, to the team for the busy season ahead! They will be helping us with a variety of projects including creating new resources for virtual and in person visitors to our conservation lands, coordinating special events for our 10th Anniversary, completing baseline surveys of two new conservation lands, including the Lu Carbyn Nature Sanctuary and another upcoming securement near Elk Island National Park, and hosting information booths and bee hotel workshops in the local community to raise awareness about the work that we do.
Cassandra Brooke is joining us as the Stewardship Assistant for a six-month term. She will be focusing on stewardship of our conservation lands, including baseline surveys and reports of new conservation lands, monitoring, and implementing management activities such as installing nest boxes or controlling invasive plants.
Alana Tollenaar is returning as the Conservation Outreach Intern for her second summer with EALT. She will be assisting with multiple field work events and supporting outreach initiatives through our social media, website, and at numerous community events.
We’re looking forward to a successful season of conservation in the Edmonton Region with our dedicated staff and volunteer team!
