Each summer, PCEC welcomes high school interns, as a part of our conservation leadership program.
This year, we're excited to introduce three stellar students. So far, they've already helped update our website, worked at the Farmer's Market, helped with PCEC's new weed monitoring program and flood-related clean-up work, have written comments on the wolf hunt, and helped with so many other things.
We asked the interns to introduce themselves. Here's what they wrote:
Hello! My name is Remy Sexton and I am going to be a junior at Park High. I work with Farm School during the summer, and I teach sex ed as a Peer Educator with Bridgercare and Haven in Bozeman. I love skiing, soccer, hiking, and swimming. I’m so excited to work with PCEC this summer!
My name is Silas Hjortsberg, I am about to be a Junior at Park High, and I was born and raised here in Livingston. I love skiing, traveling, listening to music, and playing soccer. This fall, I hope to win the state championship with the high school soccer team. In school, I take interest in science and math, but I also enjoy learning Spanish.
Hi, my name is Scarlett Welch, and I am one of the summer interns at PCEC! I will be a junior this upcoming fall at Park High. I like soccer, art, snowboarding, and spending time outside. I am excited to be working with PCEC this summer!
Conservation leadership is one of PCEC's most exciting programs. Through the program, we hope to help foster the next generation of conservation leaders through mentorship and education. Remy, Scarlett and Silas are continuing to help build on the past successes of high school interns, and we're excited for the future!
