Farewell to our 2015 Summer Interns!

Written on: July 31st, 2015 in Education & OutreachResearchStewardship

Each summer our ranks swell at the Reserve to include summer interns who help with everything from research to conservation. The summer has flown by and our interns are leaving next week so we wanted to take a chance to briefly highlight them before they go off to bigger and better things. Thanks everyone for a great summer!
