Huron Pines AmeriCorps - Conservation Innovation Through Building Capacity

Page 4
Page 4

The Huron Pines AmeriCorps program was recently renewed for three years by the Michigan Community Service Commission. We're using this renewal as an opportunity to make some changes to the program that will help us better align with state and national standards while continuing to increase capacity for conservation work in Northern Michigan with our innovative mix of on-the-ground projects and community building.

While we plan for the future, our 2013 members are making a difference today through their service. In May, we welcomed six half-time members, who will serve six months at their respective host sites. Join us in welcoming out newest members to AmeriCorps and Northeast Michigan:

Jessica Kohnert and Daniel Watt are serving at Huron Pines as Restoration Field Technicians.

Jessica Crawford is also at Huron Pines serving as a Community Stewardship Specialist.

Claire Wood is serving at the Au Sable River Watershed Committee as a River Technician.

Brian Lindsey is serving at Headwaters Chapter of Trout Unlimited as a River Stewardship Technician.

Caitlyn Donnelly is serving at Little Traverse Consercancy as a Stewardship Technician.

Huron Pines would like to wish Casey Ressl the best as she embarks on a new adventure and will soon be welcoming a new baby to her family. We would like to welcome Jennie Jardron as the new AmeriCorps coordinator. Jennie says, "I am excited to bring my educational background to the program. I recently moved to northern Michigan and enjoy the beautiful natural surroundings." Jennie can be reached at (989) 448-2293 ext. 30 or
