Our Rivers Gain Two Summer Interns!

Summer Interns photo (400 x 299)Midshore Riverkeeeper Conservancy (MRC) is delighted to announce that we will increase our staff of conservation advocates to nine, adding two summer interns for three months. These interns will assist with environmental programs to improve the health of our midshore rivers and will develop valuable career skills at the same time.

Emily Harris is from Salisbury, MD, and is a rising junior at Washington College (WC) majoring in Environmental Studies with a concentration in Chesapeake Bay Regional Studies. She completed the Chesapeake Semester during the fall semester of 2012, which is a multidisciplinary study of the Bay watershed culminating in a comparative study in Peru. During spring 2013 she was a policy and advocacy intern at Eastern Shore Land Conservancy.

Dylan Taillie is a rising junior at Tulane University down in New Orleans, LA. He has lived next to the Choptank River in Caroline County for all of his life and is elated to be given the opportunity to work preserving something so beloved to him. He is pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Economics and a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies at Tulane. He has been heavily involved in the Green Club and Divest Tulane this past year and looks forward to adapting the experience and knowledge he will gain working with MRC to New Orleans this fall.

Bringing on these youthful, energized, and committed conservation advocates to Midshore Riverkeeper Conservancy assists us in broadening our scope and expanding our reach as we work at every level to restore and protect our rivers. As a community please welcome Emily Harris and Dylan Taillie to Easton and to our efforts!
