Forestry intern (1992-1994)
I interned at the Great Mountain Forest for the summers of 1992, 1993, and 1994, while earning my Forest Management degree. The total hands on experience of Great Mountain Forest added an immeasurable skill set to my forest management education. The Great Mountain intern program puts real forest management challenges before the student with the real tools, the real heavy equipment, and the real analysis protocols to implement real solutions. Without that hands-on exposure to the tools and equipment of the industry, the book knowledge of college leaves the student far short of a real forest management education. The Great Mountain Forest experience brings the forestry student into the forest and brings the theoretical teaching
of a degree to life.
