This was an internship so it was not as intensive as I had hoped. The training at the beginning gave me a lot of insight into the program and made me really excited to start. Training gave the stewards an overview of the aquatic invasives in NY State, and how to approach and interact with boaters. I spent most time working with only my supervisor, but it was very enjoyable. Being able to work closely with him also allowed me to gain more insight into the field I would like to go into.
I really wish I would have been able to do more with the actual Organization, but I feel that this opportunity also allowed me to work on my people skills. Along with people skills I was able to improve my data collecting.
