Hello. My name is Anna Weesies. I am a recent graduate of Michigan State University with a BS in Zoology, concentrating in ecology, evolution, and organismal biology. I joined SCA following a recommendation from a friend who had already completed an internship through this organization. This summer I will be working with the SE Exotic Plant Management Team eradicating invasive plants from 16 miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
Originally from Holland, MI, I am used to a completely different landscape. I am excited to be living in a different area of the country, especially an area with mountains. I really enjoy being outdoors, whether it be hiking, biking, kayaking, or fishing. This internship will be a learning experience for me, never having worked with plants before.
