Hello. My name is Danny Stewart. I have been working on invasive plants for the past year and have grown to hate them with a passion! I’ve been in the Southeast working 18 National Parks in six states including North Carolina, South Carolina, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and Alabama. It has been an awesome experience. I now have a class A chainsaw certification, ATV training, herbicide applicators license, CPR, wilderness first aid certification, and more. I was landscaping for two years prior to this internship and now realize I shouldn’t have planted all those boxwoods and crate myrtles. Before landscaping I was the manager of Dairy Queen in Asheville, NC for three years, a very forgettable experience. I am much happier working outside throwing chainsaws around killing everything in sight. I went to high school in Pittsboro, NC. I graduated in 2004 and went off to Guilford College in Greensboro, NC on a soccer scholarship. After my first year I realized school was not for me so I moved to Asheville to figure my life out. I love to camp, hike, and fish. Really anything outdoors is enjoyable for me. I play a variety of sports, soccer being my favorite. I also play basketball, baseball, football, volleyball, and tennis. I look forward to working on the Blue Ridge Parkway trying to clean it up because I spend a lot of time hiking on it. This summer I hope to visit every waterfall in the general area. I love jumping into some freezing cold river water! That’s about it for today. PLANT NATIVE!!!!!!!
