Meet Our Intern Class of 2017: 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, they all share an intense concern for environmental well-being.

Adam is a senior at Ramapo College and will be graduating in December of 2017 with a bachelors in environmental science. His main passion is mountain biking and he also enjoys hiking and camping.

“Most of my time as an intern is spent outside doing fieldwork. One of my major projects is maintaining South Branch Preserve, which features our community garden. Another responsibility I have is inspecting properties to assess the health of our preserves. Building and maintaining trails, in particular the Lake Hopatcong trail, is another project I am working on,” Adam explained.

“I chose to intern here because of my passion for the outdoors and desire to work outside. My future plans are to become an environmental scientist upon receiving my degree. I would like to continue to work in the field, where I feel my skills are best suited.”
