Travis Audubon Welcomes Graduate Intern from St. Edwards University!

Travis Audubon welcomed its second intern of the year last week.  Executive Director Joan Marshall said,  “We’re committed to helping train the next generation of environmental leaders by providing practical experience in the field.  It’s really a win-win situation for everyone.  While we’re mentoring students, we’re also learning from them — I like to call it reverse mentoring.”

“My name is Savannah and I am a graduate student at St. Edward’s University studying environmental management and sustainability. Currently, I am helping to create new trail signage at a couple of Travis Audubon’s nature sanctuaries. These new signs will educate guests on the history and natural habitat of the sanctuaries.  My future career interests include joining an environmental consulting firm and possibly going back to school to get a Ph.D.”
