Meet HREC intern Dana Burton
We are so fortunate to have had Dana Burton join our team over the last few weeks, interning on a variety of our educational projects - here's a note from her!
I am Dana Burton. I was raised in Los Angeles, CA. Currently, I attend University of California, Davis majoring in Environmental Science and Resource Management and interning at the Hopland Research Extension Center for the summer. Here at HREC, I've been able to help on many projects such as the "Sheep Stories" a tour of Mendocino County libraries. Also, I have been fortunate to experience many different habitats and wildlife as I work on the Shippey Hall Museum drawers.
Dana worked hard to prepare raw fleeces (straight from the backs of our sheep) into brightly colored, clean wool for our educational projects! As she commented during the process "I've never even touched a sheep before!"
