Hi, I'm Emma! I am currently a senior at Wilton High School and I have the privilege of interning at Weir Farm National Historic Site this month. Next fall I will be attending the University of Connecticut in Storrs to study environmental science. When my high school offered the internship program to graduating seniors I knew that I wanted to work at this national treasure located right here in my hometown. With my previous experience of working alongside park rangers in the Youth Conservation Corps program in Yellowstone National Park last summer, I wanted the opportunity to learn even more about the park service. Along with Alosha, I will be staffing the visitor center, helping around the park, and blogging about my experiences. Since you might want to know more about me, here are three random facts about myself.
- I love to bake (and eat) "brookies"
- I can say the alphabet backwards
- Harry Potter fan… enough said
Be sure to say hi to me the next time you visit Weir Farm National Historic Site!
