It is going into week five of my internship with the Latino Heritage Internship Program and Everglades National Park. It is nearly impossible to believe that my experience is nearly halfway through and yet I am well aware that I am in the thick of things. I have gotten to know the park’s history, through my readings, and have encountered the park in-person, through hiking expeditions into the park’s key ecosystems and places of interests.…

Hello everyone! Self-quarantine is over!!! It has been over for over two weeks. I was so excited to finally be out in the field. I am finally able to look at a couple of different invasive species and tell them apart. It finally all doesn’t look the same to me. I'm always amazed when looking at parks/green spaces and find out that what I used to think was native is actually not. The picture for…

Over the past few weeks working at SEAC, I have developed a morning routine that consists of me pouring myself a cup of coffee and heading straight to the “office” to start my day at work. However, the office is my desk at my apartment! For the first two weeks at SEAC I have worked on expanding their lithics comparative collection. Then in the third week, I shifted to working on cataloging and expanding their…

I have lived in San Antonio for most of my life and I have never seen the missions in all their glory the way I recently have been able to, due to my internship.

Hi all! Hola a todos! Last week I started my new job as a Citizen Science Latinx Engagement Intern for the National Park Service in their Washington D.C. Area Support Office, or WASO for short. Since I am teleworking, I am writing this in my backyard accompanied by my pup, who would also like to share a little more about WASO.

Coming into my internship this summer, during a pandemic, I was unsure of how my internship would go. Would I be able to contribute and learn about the SEAC Center, gain experience in archeological techniques and curation, and assist in archaeological work?

Hi! Hello! I hope you are all well and staying safe. There is some much going on and being away from home makes me wish things were different. That however does not change the fact that I am excited to be here, and that video chat has never been ever more present in my life. I have officially been here over a couple of days almost a week, but for now I want to talk…

Ropemaking with Ranger Brian

Written by
Since there were no preschool programs to focus on Thursday and Friday, I got to spend some time catching up on blogs, cleaning up the ParkEd materials and exploring Salem Maritime NHS. Marianna, an Education Ranger, and I walked down the Derby Wharf and went aboard the Friendship of Salem where Brian taught us how to make rope by using white cotton string and having a volunteer hold one end of the string and then…

Salem Maritime Festival

Written by
Sadly, I couldn’t attend the LHIP conference in Washington, but I still had a blast at the 31st Salem Maritime Festival this weekend! There was live music, arts and crafts, demonstrations, and there were two visiting vessels: Kalmar Nyckel and Polaris. On both days I worked at the ParkEd table in the morning and the Pride table in the afternoon. At the Pride table there were pamphlets for Salem Maritime and Saugus Ironworks National Historic…

Captain America

Written by
The last week of July, we had no preschool programs at Salem or Saugus and instead the Education Rangers, Marianna and Tim and I got to spend the whole week at the Park for Every Classroom workshop. Although education isn’t something, I see myself pursuing as a career, seeing all the resources teachers have for students to learn in a non-traditional classroom setting and experience new places and ideas, rather than being confined to their…
