So far, I’ve enjoyed being here at the National Park. I have learned so much about conservation and how the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park has become the park it is today. I have learned many things that help better the park like how to clean and tour the Mansion which I loved doing very much. I also did customer service work at the Billing Farm and Museum. Doing customer service work I have learned a lot about myself. I am a very quiet and shy person but doing this job helps me become a better person, to come out of my shell. As well as being a mansion steward, I get to pick invasive plants that are not native here that can hurt other native wildlife, trees, and plants that we have here in the park. I felt pretty good after that. I felt accomplished, like I am helping the world be a better place.
The people here are wonderful; I like them very much. They are very friendly and open to teach all they can about the park and conservation. They are always willing to help and hear new ideas to making this a better place. My goals for this next week are to get better at not being so shy and learn more about conservation. Being here at the park I have learned many things not just about conservations and history but lifelong lessons that could take me very far. The people here are great people and I am happy to have met all of them.
