Aesthetics and Motivations for Land Preservation
As the land stewardship intern at D&R Greenway Land Trust, I worked with the directors of stewardship on various land preserves in central New Jersey to build and preserve flourishing, healthy, native ecological communities. We worked towards this goal through ecological restoration, cultivation and care of native plants, removal of nonnative invasive plant species, trail building and improvement, and the monitoring of properties and conservation easements. I also worked with another intern on an independent project focused on using geocaching as a tool for education and public involvement in the natural world. The project involved the creation of a special trail with informational geocaches to educate hikers about native New Jersey forests.
