August 10, 2017. By Trevor Burns, NH Sea Grant Doyle Fellow summer intern with the Coastal Research Volunteers. Trevor will be a senior at UNH studying Marine, Estuarine, and Freshwater Biology.
This is the last week of my Doyle Fellowship. I would like to thank New Hampshire Sea Grant for this great opportunity they have given me. A special thanks to Alyson and Caitlin for guiding me throughout the summer, teaching me valuable experiences.
One of the best experiences I had this summer was seeing how Sea Grant and UNH Cooperative Extension connect with citizens in the area about issues related to their communities. I also got valuable experience in field data collection during all the projects I was a part of. Lastly, I learned a lot about coastal ecology and the in-depth importance of these valuable systems. I look forward to continuing my studies at UNH using all the experiences I gained this summer.
