Summer 2022

Throughout the course of my summer internship, I worked on a number of projects for the Birds of Vermont Museum. The projects include taking inventory of the insect collection as well as uploading the species onto iNaturalist, a website that shares observations of species with naturalists across the globe! Another project I worked on was creating plant markers for the pollinator gardens. I did this by spending time in the gardens identifying as many species as I could. Then I wood burned the names onto individual wooden cookies to keep with the theme of the museum. The last project I did involved going through each of the specimen skins, assessing their condition and determining if the skins should be kept. In addition to these projects I helped with other tasks around the museum which included working at the gift shop, welcoming and assisting visitors, and other little tasks.
