For the second year, KLT interns supported our friends at the Vaughan Woods and Historic Homestead. Every Wednesday, Vaughan Woods hosts children from the city of Hallowell’s recreation program. Children visit Vaughan Woods for an environmental education or history program, and depending on the weather, get to spend a lot of time out in the woods. They host the youngest children on week one, and every week an older age group joins them until the program ends.
Kate Tremblay, Executive Director at Vaughan Woods, says “The Kennebec Land Trust Interns provide youthful positive role models - its wonderful for our local kids to be exposed to young adults who are pursuing a career in conservation and who genuinely love and care for the natural world. We are grateful for this partnership and truly enjoy getting to know the interns each year!”
This partnership has been a great opportunity for KLT to support the Vaughan Homestead and to help create meaningful outdoor experiences for youth in our community. Jordan Tanguay, one of our 2018 interns, said, “The other day, we walked up through the stream catching eels and frogs, and saw a snapping turtle. The kids also made stick boats, went searching for butterflies in the field, and got a kick out of watching the Vaughan Woods chickens. I think the kids really like learning about local history and the environment in a non-classroom setting and it’s a lot of fun for us, too.”

We are proud of our past interns and their accomplishments. Many of KLT’s interns have gone on to interesting careers in conservation. We heard recently from three former interns: Avery Siler, our 2015 intern and 2016 conservation assistant, Wade Davis, 2010 summer intern, and Amanda Lavigueur, 2011 summer intern.
