    The Bunchberry Meadows project is a huge undertaking for NCC in the northwest region of Alberta. I consider myself to be lucky in that I have the opportunity to help out with the final steps of preparation before it’s officially opened to the public. It’s quite a large area and very close to the city – I’m sure its diversity in habitats throughout its natural walking paths will make it a big hit with the public.

    "It is always thrilling when we go out to properties and bushwhack through old-growth Acadian forest stands or hunt for piping plovers along red sand beaches. PEI may be small, but it is home to a diverse range of habitats. Each property brings a novel experience to explore."

    "New Brunswick has an array of unique habitats that are rich in biological diversity, which I will be lucky enough to encounter during my internship this summer with the Nature Conservancy of Canada. New Brunswick has an abundance of striking wilderness havens in terms of esthetic beauty and species diversity, which I will get to enjoy on a personal level by conducting ecosystem classification and trail system mapping.

    "Any day spent surrounded by trees or water is a good day in my books, but my favourite task is to monitor for species at risk on NCC properties. Sometimes environmental news is discouraging, but when we find species like gray ratsnake, Blanding’s turtles or cerulean warblers on our properties, it definitely feels like we’re on the right track with our conservation efforts. "
