During my time at D&R Greenway I worked as an environmental stewardship intern. The purpose of my internship was to learn how to take care of preserved habitats in ways that encourage the propagation of native flora and fauna. I spent most of my time outside, working on various projects ranging from maintaining and creating recreational trails, to controlling the spread of invasive species, to monitoring conservation easements. The nature of my work was fairly physical as it involved a lot of walking and use of hand tools, but it was a nice change of pace from a typical desk job. Spending so much time in the natural world, through this internship helped me gain a deeper respect and appreciation for the environment. While I may not pursue this particular avenue of environmental work, this internship was instrumental in helping solidify my interest in pursuing an environmentally-focused career after graduating from Princeton.
