Isabel Ryen, a rising third-year student, has joined Gunpowder RIVERKEEPER® as our second summer intern from Skidmore College. With a love for hiking and the outdoors, Isabel is excited to join RIVERKEEPER®’s efforts in conserving, preserving, and restoring the Gunpowder and Bush watersheds. She is pursuing her undergraduate degree in Environmental Studies, with a concentration in environmental justice and the nonprofit field.
“I have had a lively first week at Gunpowder RIVERKEEPER®! I have engaged in bacteria monitoring, outreach, and social media development. This work has already provided me with relevant, significant experience. I am eager to support RIVERKEEPER®’s further endeavors in protecting the invaluable Gunpowder and Bird Rivers and their watersheds.”
