Our interns represent a diverse range of talents, abilities, backgrounds, interests and fields of study. Dozens of interns have worked with The Land Conservancy of New Jersey, and they all share a common goal of environmental well-being.
Aaron attends Sussex County Community College and is studying Horticulture Science. He is treasurer of the Biology Club and enjoys playing guitar, hiking, running and exploring the outdoors.
While interning at The Land Conservancy, Aaron has been identifying and removing invasive plant species, helped install a 1600 foot snow fence, set up and electric fence, conducted environmental inspections and surveys, and maintained the South Branch Preserve trails.
“I chose to Intern here because it seemed like an awesome opportunity to gain outdoor experience for the environmental field. So far, it has been! I have been learning a ton about the native birds and plants,” said Aaron.
After college, Aaron plans on traveling around the United States, Europe and Asia; all while continuing to gain experience in the conservation field. He would eventually like to work for a state or national park.
