MEET OUR 2022 INTERNS
I am a rising senior at Colgate University where I am majoring in Environmental Studies with a double minor in Geography and Public Health. This summer I will be the South Fork Initiative Access Catalogue Intern working with Dave Weskamp. As I hope to one day pursue a career at a conservation-based non-profit, I am so excited to explore my interests in hydrology and conservation this summer. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, reading, and exploring my new surroundings. I am extremely thankful for this opportunity and look forward to working with the Henry’s Fork Foundation!
I am a rising senior at Brown University concentrating in Environmental Science on the Sustainability in Development track. This summer, I will be working alongside Doctoral Research Associate Christina Morrisett and Farms and Fish Program Manager Daniel Wilcox as the Irrigation and Water Resources Sociology Intern. This will be a chance to engage with irrigation entities in the area while simultaneously using federal databases to draw connections between irrigation, groundwater, and rivers. Ultimately, this is an effort to help inform aquifer recharge strategies. I have always been passionate about spending time outdoors, whether that be hiking, biking, or just walking my corgi. I’m very grateful for the opportunity that Henry’s Fork Foundation is providing me to contribute to meaningful science-based conservation work while also being able to immerse myself in nature and explore the region!
HANNAH GRACE GALBREATH
Washington and Lee University
I am a rising senior at Washington and Lee University, majoring in Biology and Environmental Studies on a Climate Change Track. This summer I will be working alongside Jack McLaren to research a plethora of water quality parameters that influence Trout and other fish population habitats in Island Park Reservoir. I love all things water including kayaking, fishing, and boating, and have particular interests in water conservation and harmful algal blooms. Coming out west has always been a dream of mine, so I am beyond grateful that Henry’s Fork Foundation has allowed me to come to Idaho. I am incredibly excited to participate in extraordinary opportunities such as water research and seminars and so grateful to be an intern at HFF this summer!
EMMA FRANCES DOHERTY
St. Lawrence University
I am a rising junior at St Lawrence University majoring in global studies with a topical focus in either environmental studies or peace studies, with a geographical focus on southeast Asia. I’m perusing minors in public health and sociology, as I hope to do social justice nonprofit work in grassroots organizing and advocacy. This summer I am incredibly excited to be working with Kamberlee Allison as my mentor. I will be conducting a comprehensive review of the internship program at HFF, reviewing and producing an analysis the internship program's outcomes for my independent project. I hope to gain the skills and knowledge through my research to not only work in nonprofits in the future but one day to hopefully run my own! My free time is often spent working on creative projects such as painting, jewelry making, or upcycling old clothing, as well as scouting out the nearest furry friend, as a springer spaniel owner myself and pet enthusiast. I love adventuring and am so excited to spend the rest of my time exploring, hiking, rock climbing, and fishing in one of the most beautiful and unique areas in the country!
I’m a rising sophomore at Stanford University, and I’m planning on majoring either in Earth Systems or Energy Resources Engineering. I’m very thankful to be working along Jamie Laatsch as the Project Monitoring Intern. I hope to get a feel for what it means to actually be using science to enhance the conservation of such a valuable natural space, as is the Henry’s Fork. I’m originally from Uruguay, and I grew up by the beach. Back at home I have seen how a lack of efforts to protect a space can lead to its degradation, so I’m enticed to learn how HFF works to achieve a sustainable relationship with the land, involving the surrounding community. I’ve also never been to this part of the US, so exploring the nature near Ashton will also be fun. Exciting things await!
I am a rising junior at Brigham Young University-Idaho majoring in Fisheries, Wildlife, and Range Ecology with a concentration in Fisheries Biology. I grew up in Rigby, Idaho and I am the oldest of 5 children. During my internship here at Henry's Fork Foundation, I strive to gain real experience in the field and in the functions of the foundation including community events, data analysis, and technical/scientific reports and literature, with Matt Hively as my mentor. I enjoy constantly trying new things such as new sports, and foods, and exploring new places. Some of my hobbies include hiking, roller skating, cooking, running, camping, playing guitar, and singing.
My name is Nathan Nadal, I am a senior at Brigham Young University- Idaho. I am majoring in Fish, Wildlife and Range Management with a minor in Earth Studies. Before moving to Idaho in 2018 I grew up in Tulsa, Oklahoma. When I am not at work at the Henry's Fork Foundation, you can often find me hiking, camping and fly fishing throughout Eastern Idaho.
