The purpose was the development of a tool to help with the protection and management of these important resources. Nick also worked on documentation in the exclusionary zone and the expansion of a study collection of leaves. He worked several extra weeks in order to assist with the dam project by helping to fill sandbags and aid the restoration project. Nick is an environmental sciences major at King's College.

As Assistant Director for our annual Summer Discovery Camp, Ben assisted with managing day-to-day operations, staff oversight, strategic planning, and writing and implementation of new camp curriculum. In addition, Ben had the opportunity to give mill tours to the public and to conduct outreach and marketing research.
Currently a graduate student and Hagley Fellow with the Department of History at the University of Delaware, Ben earned his master's degree in history at the University of Liverpool in 2013. Although his internship has come to an end, Ben hopes to maintain a close relationship with the site and its staff. From time to time, he can still be found hanging out by the frog pond, his new favorite place.
