We mentored 4 interns this past summer (2010) who contributed an additional 828 hours of effort. · Hale Morrell, from New Hampshire, is attending College of the Atlantic in Bar Harbor, Maine and majoring in Ecology and Wildlife Biology. Hale learned a lot about research and human/ wildlife interactions and spent every free moment exploring the Park. · Marc Jeker, from Hong Kong, Dubai, and Chicago, completed his last semester at Northwestern University’s Environmental Field Program during his internship. Marc experienced many “firsts” this summer, including his first hike, his first backpacking and canoeing trips, and his first sightings of bears, mountain goats, bighorn sheep, and loons. · Dylan Lewis, from New York, is a senior at Northwestern University, majoring in Political Science with a minor in Environmental Policy.
