"Hi! My name is Maebrie Cruce. I will be graduating from the University of Arkansas this May with a Bachelor of Science in animal science and a Bachelor of Arts in journalism. I enjoy hiking, swimming, and kayaking regularly and grew up with the Ozark National Forest in my back yard in Fifty Six, AR. I look forward to working as an intern with the NWA Land Trust to further my skills in outdoor education as well as nurturing my passion for conservation."
Ashley Smith: "I am a junior majoring in Environmental, Soil, and Water Science at the University of Arkansas. On the weekends you can usually find me on a trail or in my kayak! I am enthusiastic about interning this semester as it really brings together my love of being outdoors, and spreading environmental awareness."
"My name is Jordan Johnson and I am a communications development intern at NWA Land Trust. As a junior at the University of Arkansas studying communications, I am grateful for an opportunity to focus on my degree outside of the classroom. Growing up working alongside my mom for a non-profit, I knew I wanted to continue that kind of work and this spring I'm going to be able to do just that. I hope to inspire others in our community and bring awareness to what NWA Land trust is all about."
