Coastal Conservation Research Program

The CCRP interns in the 2022 Luing Family Internship Program began their positions in full force just before Memorial Day, and the weeks have been speeding by since!

Christian Anthopoulos, Eckerd College
Caroline Behnke, Univ. of Tennessee, Knoxville
Destiny Devlin, East Stroudsburg Univ./Bucks County Community College
Rachel Helt, Lebanon Valley College
Harrison Hepding, Univ. of Rhode Island
Ella Souder, University of Miami

Environmental Education Program

Let the adventure begin! Our Environmental Education Interns are spending 12 weeks leading public education programs and designing their own independent project, all while immersing themselves in the unique environment of the surrounding saltmarsh and barrier islands. Already off to a great start, they look forward to meeting you:
Francesca Jacobs, Washington College
Jackson Sullivan, Stockton University
Kayla Thanner, Eckerd College

Mark your calendars so you can join us to see the results of their summer projects at The Wetlands Institute’s Annual Intern Symposium on August 1!

Our summer intern positions are supported through The Larry L. Luing Family Foundation and The Barbara and Jim Summers Intern Endowment Fund
