Summer 2011 Internship

This summer I am interning at L&L Environmental in Southern California. It is a small family owned firm that deals with Biology, Archeology, and Paleontology. I am learning a lot about mitigation and surveying sites. I am also meeting lots of people from the Army Corps of Engineers and local state agencies. The main projects I have been involved with are a project with endangered Desert Tortoise on it and a project with endangered Burrowing Owl on it. Through these projects I am learning how to identify these animal's habitats and common plants for this region. I am also learning about the paper work that is involved with these cases. It's very interesting to see how some of the things that I learned from my environmental policy class can be in the real world. That's all I have for now.
