We are excited to introduce our two new summer interns!
Emily Hallit is our summer Stewardship Intern. She will assist in conducting annual monitoring visits of FLT’s properties to assess their condition, resolving any issues observed during these visits, writing subsequent reports, and helping out with any other stewardship activities as needed.
Emily is a senior biology major and physics minor at Samford University from Los Angeles, CA, currently living in Huntsville. She loves learning about plants, especially asters, and she’s both curious and excited to learn more about interactions within the environment amongst species of all sorts and to explore Central Alabama’s incredibly diverse habitat. In her free time, Emily loves to crochet and watch Marvel movies, and she has three cats: Jackjack, Sara, and Samson.
Sarah Yarbrough is joining us as our summer Communications Intern. She will be writing blog posts about conservation and stewardship topics, researching and creating one-page overviews of our legacy projects, and assisting with various other communications-related tasks.
Sarah is a senior at Jacksonville State University majoring in English with a concentration in Professional Writing and a minor in Biology. Between studying as a full-time student and working full time at St. Vincent’s East, she enjoys writing environmental/nature poetry, hiking, and kayaking. She has recently submitted a few pieces to be published and is awaiting acceptance.
Emily and Sarah started their internships at the end of May and will continue working with us through the end of July. We are pumped to be working with both of these amazing humans this summer. Welcome to the team, Emily and Sarah!
