SU Environmental Studies Students Discuss Internships Tuesday, October 2

SALISBURY, MD---What is it like working at the National Aquarium? Leading disadvantaged youth through Yellowstone National Park? Interning with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in the Navajo Nation? Farming in the New Mexico mountains?

Students from Salisbury University’s new Environmental Studies Department share their insights into these areas during the presentation “Environmental Studies Summer Experiences” 7 p.m. Tuesday, October 2, in Henson Science Hall Room 109.

Junior Kelly Beall of West River, MD, spent her summer getting up close and personal with marine life at the National Aquarium in Baltimore. Burns, a freshman from Upper Marlboro, MD, served as a camp ranger in the back country of Yellowstone.
