Welcome to blog number five from Point Reyes National Seashore! This week’s blog will focus on introducing an influential person: my supervisor Carlo Arreglo!
Carlo is an interpretive ranger at Point Reyes and has been exceptional in orienting me with the park and ensuring I am gaining plenty of new skills and experiences. He has an amazing interest in all things birds, and he never ceases to amaze me when he can identify birds by their calls. As well, many of the outings I have written previously about, such as the snowy plover and tule grass surveys, were organized by Carlo for my enrichment. I truly enjoy working in collaboration with Carlo and learning from his experiences in school and the park service.
The Plastic Waste program I have been developing was recently completed, and Carlo helped me to officially schedule the pilot program offering for Wednesday, July 3! I greatly appreciate Carlo’s support and flexibility in allowing me to create and present a project of my choosing to the public. Now finalized, the program will talk about the rise in plastic production and issues posed to wildlife and humans, concluding with a clean-up on a park beach. I will be sure to follow-up on how the event goes in a future writing!
Thank you again for continuing to follow my adventures here in Northern California, and keep reading below for some more photo updates! Until next week!
