Celebrating Birds

 

In 2012, EFTA began building partnerships with governement agencices and non-profirs to provide shorebird conservation internship experiences for Latinos. This internship program addresses EFTA’s desire to increase diversity within natural resources while conducting long-term bird conservation studies. This internship program was formerly known as Celebrate Shorebirds, but since then it has evolved and expanded. Although the past internship focused on shorebird and avian conservation, we welcome and have integrated any nature-based educational programs.

It is better to be prepared than sorry!

Last week was safety week at the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) office. I participated a whole day in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and First Aid training to refresh my memory on both topics. I have been taking both trainings for quite some time now and...
