“I liked that I was able to travel all over the state of Michigan doing stream restorations, erosion control, electrofishing and was able to help with the Houghton disaster over the course of one summer. The experience and knowledge I gained over such a short amount of time is something that I will be able to rememeber for a long time and hope I will be able to return for another season next year. The Superior Watershed Partnership is and will always be one of my favorite job, the staff I worked with and the bosses that are in the office were all amazing people. I am thankful for the opportunity they gave me and all the experiences they put me through.”
