Welcome Summer Interns!

We’re excited to welcome our summer interns to the EALT Team for the busy summer season. They will be assisting us with many projects including bat & owl habitat enhancement, nature discovery for kids, Canada 150 celebrations, and restoring the health of Willow creek.

Felysia Green is returning as the Conservation Intern for her 3rd summer and will be leading our dedicated volunteer team in the field and helping out with many of our events.

“The next four months are going to be jam packed with learning, leading, and fun! Summer will bring good memories and hard work. I have enjoyed working in conservation the last few years and look forward to the many skills I will gain and improve this summer. I am excited to spend my time connecting and working with EALT’s community to conserve the Edmonton region.”

Alana Tollenaar is joining us as the Conservation & Outreach Intern, and will be assisting with field work and events and will be leading social media outreach. She recently completed a SCiP internship with us to write many of our Fauna Friday social media posts.

“I am so excited to be working with EALT this summer! I can’t wait to meet and work with the large network of people in the Edmonton Area who share a passion for wildlife and conservation. I’m most looking forward to being a part of the amazing events EALT has planned for the summer – geocaching events, bee hotel workshops, volunteer days, and so many more. I hope to see you in the field!”

Tony Shao is doing a volunteer internship with us this summer and will be helping with field work, and will complete several independent projects. You may have met Tony out in the community this spring, leading our info booths as part of a SCiP internship.

“I am both glad and excited to be a part of EALT’s family. Working as an intern with EALT grants me the chance of exercising environmental field techniques; it also provides me with the insight of the Canadian environment topic, perspective, and direction for future. On the other hand, I rarely have the opportunity to experience any sort of field work back in post-secondary except for field school. EALT’s internship (program) is able to fill in this gap and allow me to continuously learn firsthand out in the field.”

We are looking forward to a productive summer with our dedicated staff and volunteer team, all working together to further local nature conservation.
