I had an amazing summer as an intern with the National Parks Service affording me opportunities to work with top-notch scientists in the USGS and NPS alike. Two highlights from the summer were a trip to Sleeping Bear Dunes National Park and conference in DC where I was fortunate enough to meet Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell. Below are three of my favorite photos from the summer.
The first shows the federally threatened pitcher’s thistle (Cirsium pitcher) at Sleeping Bear. The second shows Marine One making practice flights while the President was on Martha’s Vineyard. The last photo shows NPS interns with Secretary Jewell.
