My favorite thing that I like about my work is the aspect that it allows generations after me to enjoy these remarkable places and inspire them.
Based on your own experience, what did you get out of your time at MOSS and why would you recommend it to someone else?
Throughout my time at MOSS, any ecological class or study that we conducted help build a great foundation of understanding of our natural world. I am able to apply a lot of what I learned to everyday tasks at work. Being on a fire crew, comradery and community is a large part of your life. Learning how to support and give constructive feedback while your part of a cohort at MOSS gave me a lot of practice in that. I was not only able to strengthen my role as a community member through MOSS but able to make some life-long friends.
