We bid a bittersweet adieu to our first 2013 intern, Brenda O’Dell, on Friday, March 22, as she finished her 10-week internship on graphic design and photography. Staff of the South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve showed up to her presentation that highlighted her accomplishments over the winter term and showcased her talents in photograpy and digital arts. We hope that her experience here has been both fun and helpful as she finishes up her associate’s degree at Southwestern. Whether she starts her own graphic arts business or works for another organization, we are confident to say that her talents will not go unnoticed for long!


Additionally, Chris Kangas, our talented GIS intern, presented to the staff after our morning meeting on April 11. He talked about his adventurous time here, surfing and mountain biking, as well as his contributions to the Slough, which consisted of numerous highly professional topographical maps of the area. His last day is April 12, and then he plans to head north to visit friends and family and mountainbike and eventually head back to Montana.

We hope these two spring interns have benefitted as much from their work here as we have from them, and we wish them the best on their journeys forward.
