What an amazing summer! HRWC’s interns were equally awesome – the group included students from Eastern Michigan University, Grand Valley State University, Michigan State University, University of Michigan, Washtenaw Community College, as well as Dexter High School, Rudolph Steiner High School, and Washtenaw International High School.
Over the summer, these wonderful students contributed to many of HRWC’s summer programs and monitoring efforts, including our STEM education program, a YMCA youth snorkeling program, a Parkridge Community Center summer camp, rain garden installation and maintenance, Huron River Water Trail signage inventorying, invasive European Frogbit monitoring, river sensor node network maintenance, and in-stream habitat monitoring. The interns also helped launch two pilot projects: our mussel monitoring program and a storm drain waste characterization project.
All of us at HRWC are grateful for these dedicated young professionals, and we are excited to see where their future education and careers take them!
