“I loved working outside, right on the Hudson River. I really enjoyed identifying the plants in the tidal marsh and creating a field guide book for CURB to use for future education opportunities and visitors. I also really loved being a mentor and a teacher to local Yonkers teenagers as a part of the first Blue Team project. This project involved taking water quality samples three times a day and testing them in the lab for Enterococcus levels. ”
