Internship at Fairview Gardens
“Hello Coastal Fund!
Thanks so much for dedicating funding to Fairview Gardens! I was able to continue into summer with another position as a camp counselor, and am still working on my lasting project for the farm – signage for medicinal plants and their uses in the children’s garden! My time at Fairview has been a truly wonderful time; I was welcomed with open arms and a whole lot of awesome opportunities offered up by Kelly Campbell to fit in where I best saw fit throughout the farm. To be able to watch kids learn and play over the course of ten weeks was incredible, and it started to feel like a home away from home for many of us. Thank you so much for dedicating funds to educating our future generations on where our food comes from! I can’t think of a more important lesson to learn at such a young age!
Because of my time at Fairview and my internship through the coastal fund, I have been offered a position to continue in outdoor education at Golden Gate National Park up in San Francisco this fall. I am overwhelmed with gratitude that I will be able to continue doing what I love most (teaching students about the natural world) and that Coastal Fund allowed me the opportunity to follow this dream with support and funding for education!
Internships at CCBER
“I am happy to say that I will still be CCBER for the following school year!
I’m extremely grateful for the opportunities CCBER provides to students and the community. It’s wonderful to be surrounded by such an engaging and knowledgable staff while working in one the most beautiful places in California!
I’d like to thank Coastal Fund for their continual support in our projects. We couldn’t have done it with you all!
I’m thankful to say that I will be continuing to work with CCBER throughout the summer of 2015 and hopefully even into the academic year of ’15-’16. Interning in the Spring of 2015 providing me great insight into the field work done by CCBER staff and importance of maintaining local habitats and natural landscapes. I’m thrilled to continue learning with them in the future and working towards a good cause. Thank you for what you do at the Coastal Fund as much of this would not have happened without your work.
Internship at REEF
“I have loved working at the REEF. I have learned so much about the amazing marine animals that we have right off the coast. I have had the amazing opportunity to work with sharks as the shark aquarist and I find them fascinating and undeserving of their terrifying connotation. I would love to see people become less afraid of sharks and to learn just how amazing they really are.
