Meet Adam

Meet Our Intern Class of 2016: Adam Vandenbos

Our interns represent a diverse range of talents, abilities, backgrounds, interests and fields of study.  While dozens of interns have worked with The Land Conservancy of New Jersey, since 2000, over 60 interns share an intense concern for environmental well-being.

Adam recently finished his Associate’s degree in biology from County College of Morris and will be a 2017 graduate of Ramapo College of New Jersey with a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science. He is a member of the cycling team, Team Town Cycle and JORBA (Jersey Off-road Bicycle Association) where he volunteers his time to help build multiuse trails for both biking and hiking.

At The Land Conservancy, Adam has been instrumental in maintaining the South Branch Preserve, where he ensures the grounds are in good health and assists with the Community Garden. He is also working with the Lake Hopatcong Commission to build a trail around the lake. “I choose to intern here because of my passion for the outdoors. The Land Conservancy allows me to learn in hands on way while making an impact that outlasts my time as an intern,” said Adam.
