Blog Post 5 7/22/14-7/26/14

August 12, 2014 Posted by: S Martin

As the weeks pass, it all seems like it is coming together. This week was full of reflections. It has been a busy first half of the summer and as the pace picks up, and anticipating the weeks ahead, I don’t know if we have been valuing the little things or our time here as well as we would like.
 
Of course, Tuesday and Wednesday were centered around the interpretation division and making sure the duty stations were manned, but the reflection really happened on Thursday and the days following; reflection--of our surroundings, of our team, and of ourselves.

Thursday, we were fortunate enough to work with education coordinator, Joan Haley and Lisa Italiano of the Green Mountain Writing Project through the University of Vermont (UVM). We were able to take a hike literally and go on an adventure using art and writing to engage with nature. This hiking, writing, and drawing adventure was an event through“Bookstock” which took place all weekend long. We were able to hike the precipice trail, free write and create pantome poems in nature, and water color in the garden. Each activity allowed for the interns to reflect in nature, and allow the inspiration of the landscape to overtake the soul. It was a very relaxing and insightful experience.

Friday, the interns and I were able to do an impromptu leadership development workshop with my supervisor, Kat Robbins, and reflect once again. This time, the focus was on the 5 stages of team foundation, founded by Bruce Tuckman in the mid 1960’s.  The stages include: Forming, Storming, Norming, Preforming, and Adjourning. Through these stages we were able to better clarify our goals as a team.

We were also able to meet with Ed Sharron, Science and Communication Specialist of the Northeast Temperate Network (NETN), and learn about what it is he does, by hands on field exploration. We stopped at different areas of the park and focused on water quality, inventory and monitoring, climate change, and erosion. 
               
Later in the day, we all worked on Summit Prep and finalized the schedule of the day and assigned group members to lead the various activities. I cannot believe the summit is only a week away!!! We have been filming, but not as much this week,and I realized this when we went to a going away party for Curator, Laura Anderson. This was an after work get together, but there was so much life and animation, and I am happy to be a part of such a fantastic team. This was alsowhere the National Park Foundation (NPF) interns, Carmen and Jack ended up interviewing the interns for their video project. Our video will be premiered at the youth summit, and this week we will have to work stringently to makesure all of our scenes are documented.

Saturday, we continued with the mojo of summit prep as well as taking some time to engage in a leadership development workshop facilitated by Alex Koller and focused on the idea of individuality and collaboration. This was a great activity and was yet again another time this week to think about our group dynamic and how we individually bring ideas and skills to the table.We were also able to think about how we can collaborate and use this individuality to create something larger than ourselves.

In the afternoon we were given the opportunity to listen to a lecture presented by expert, Ben Kilhim, an independent wildlife biologist with a focus on bears in New Hampshire. His passion for the wildlife and the outdoors made his talk so compelling and you could vividly depict the imageryas the words lingered to the audience. Some of the interns also were able to participate on a Robert Frost talk, and get more information on Frost's life and legacy. This summer is going by quick, and we are all anticipating the summit as it is fast approaching, but I am fortunate we had this time to reflect. Itis the calm before the storm of success =)

    CPA Training, Online CPA Training, India, Australia, USA, UK, Canada, South Africa, International A content gateway is a script you get from certain CPA networks that blocks a visitor from entering your web page unless they fill out a form. When a person fills out the information the page is then released and the viewer can proceed to that page. It could be something like a survey, email lead or zip code or whatever. Once they do you GET PAID a few bucks as an affiliate. CPA Training What you must understand is that a content gateway CPA is not something you want to just do on your home page. You use it when you are offering some more important content or a free download to a book or software or to keep a free membership site free. That way you can earn some cash while your visitors can get access for nothing. Just make sure you own the content or have the rights to show the material.
