Every summer, the Preserve is proud to offer internship opportunities to some up-and-coming industry professionals. Each comes to the Preserve with a unique set of skills and interests. Throughout the summer they experience the full gamut of the Preserve’s offerings and mesh their interest with their learnings. Join us to discover a little more about this year’s dynamic duo and see what natural wonders has captured their interests this season. Topics to be announced. This session will consist of two 30-minute lectures.

Grace Lenart is a consistently soil-laden horticulturist, artist and devotee to all things verdant. Before arriving at the Preserve, she received a B.S. in horticulture with a minor in horticultural therapy from Temple University. She facilitated nature-based wellness groups for students on campus, conducted research on environmental divers of herbaceous distribution across a disturbed forest at the Temple Ambler Field Station and worked as a student gardener at the Ambler Arboretum. Using her background in plant identification, passion for art and interest in advocating for others, Lenart aims to make a meaningful impact on the Preserve that will benefit visitors for years to come.

Meryl Callaway is an environmentalist and avid nature lover from Yardley, PA. Before joining the Preserve, she graduated with a degree in environmentalscience from the University of Vermont, concentrating in conservation biology and biodiversity and minoring in geospatial technologies. Through her research, Callaway worked to quantify the spatial extent of biological hotspots and their relationship with preserved forest areas of VT. At the preserve, she looks forward to furthering her understanding of ecosystem dynamics and becoming more closely involved in the New Hope community.
