Hola Todos!

My name is Victoria Pedrosa and I have finally made it to my site, Kings Canyon National Park!! I am a born and bred Southern Californian, warm beaches to my left and majestic mountainous ranges to my northern right. I have been privileged enough to call the Sierra Nevada as part of my home for so long and am absolutely thrilled that I have received this opportunity to give back to the place I love so much.

First Program on American Indians

Hello again!

So far I have been thriving here in Cedar Grove! I have been presenting my talk on the American Indians of Kings Canyon and California for the past couple weeks now and have been loving giving it. When I first arrived here, I was told “okay Victoria, you’re going to have to develop and present a talk in a week, what are you interested in?”. That question held a lot of weight for me, I am currently studying Sociology and Environmental Science in school right now, so I had an array of different topics that fascinated me. What I noticed though was that my coworkers had already created programs regarding the geology of the canyon and the animals living inside it, there was even one on the first settlers of the canyon. However, there was not much I had heard about the first people to actually inhabit and live in the canyon.

Just Cedar Grove Things

The weeks are counting down, and the days seem to go even quicker. I love being able to interact with visitors to Kings Canyon across the U.S. and from around the world. All the experiences and everything that I have learned from my internship I can carry forward in school, career, and life. I really cherish the time that I spent growing and learning during this opportunity. My new experiences here are coming to an end and I am really sad that it is so close now. I have a little under three weeks left during my internship in Kings Canyon.
