Invasive Species Management Intern
Nick's internship focus was twofold: he documented and researched invasive plants and compiled a guide to invasives for future identification and eradication purposes. It wasn't all computer-based however, as he also worked on eradicating Russian olives in the park and assisted with pond maintenance, trail clearing, summer camp, and wigwam construction.
