2016 Interns Join DLLT

June 15, 2016

We have two new faces in the Downeast Lakes Land Trust office.  Two conservation interns have joined us for the summer months of 2016 to help with numerous projects including trail and campsite maintenance, education programs, wildlife monitoring, and habitat restoration.

Josh Levitsky, a recent graduate of Shippensburg University (PA) with a degree in Environmental Biology and Ecology, joined DLLT on June 7th and has already been hard at work, clearing hiking trails, monitoring stream crossings, and getting to know the Farm Cove Community Forest.  An avid mountain biker, Josh has a strong interest in botany and restoration ecology.

Logan Johnson, a native of Calais, ME, recently finished his third year at the University of Maine – Orono.  A biology major, Logan previously interned with Woodland Pulp, LLC and is passionate about conserving the natural resources of his native Washington County.  Logan joined DLLT today and is hitting the ground running, working on water trail campsite maintenance.

Be sure to stop in and welcome them to Grand Lake Stream, or say hello at one of our exciting summer events!
