We are pleased to welcome Lucy Tabb to CELT for the summer through the G. Rockefeller Conservation Internship, a program coordinated by Maine Coast Heritage Trust! Lucy will be working with our staff and volunteers on a range of projects related to land stewardship, including removing invasive species, refreshing signage, and assisting with management planning for some of our more recently-conserved properties.
Lucy is currently a senior at the University of Southern Maine pursuing a degree in English as a part of the Honors Program. She shared the following with us:
“I grew up in Portland, and have always enjoyed spending time outdoors on all of the beautiful trails in Southern Maine. I spent the past two summers working for Maine Audubon as an educator and loved teaching elementary school students about Maine’s wildlife. Last year, I spent two months in the woods of North Carolina for an intensive outdoor educator training with Outward Bound. Since then I have worked as a trip leader at Warren Wilson College, leading backpacking and foraging trips for their student body. I am thrilled to work this summer for the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust as the stewardship intern and I am eager to learn all of the ins and outs of what it takes to make a land trust thrive.”
Welcome Lucy, and we look forward to sharing more about your projects as the summer progresses!
