Big Sky Watershed Corps Intern
“I am inspired by the respect for the natural world here in Bozeman, and by people’s desire to protect and enjoy that world. The fact that I’m able to help realize these desires makes me honored to work at GVLT.”
Anna’s passion for the natural world set in at an early age as she wandered the woods and the Colorado River in Austin, Texas, her hometown. She earned a B.A. in Plan II Honors and a B.A. in European Studies from the University of Texas at Austin. She spent her college summers working in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Park, sparking a deep connection to the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. Since graduating, Anna has worked as a backcountry trail crew member for the U.S. Forest Service in Grand Lake, CO, a ski instructor in Keystone, CO, and a leader for youth trail work for the City of Boulder, CO. She takes particular interest in the ethnographic study of relationships between people and land, and is so excited to be able to explore that in her work at GVLT. Anna firmly believes that trails and open space can change people for the better. When she’s not working, you can find her playing pick-up soccer, hiking, skiing, playing music, or reading at Treeline Coffee!
