Ian is an Environmental Technician this summer with Watersheds Canada. He shares his experience so far in the role:
“As a student coming out of college, I am more than pleased to work with Watersheds Canada. I began my journey with Watersheds as a field-placement in my program at Sir Sandford Fleming College, which turned into a summer position. I quickly realized all my skills and knowledge I learned from the Ecosystem Management Technician program were falling into place when it came to lake health, and plant identification.
I’ve been having a blast so far these past two months, specifically working in the Natural Edge program and taking care of our plant nursery. I am responsible for tree, shrub, and flower plantings on many beautiful lakes and properties across Eastern Ontario and I get to meet caring property owners who want to improve the health of their lake. With every week that passes working with Watersheds, it’s always exciting to wonder what is going to happen next!”
