A Little About Me

A Little About Me

Hello there!

My name is Tania, I am a Mosaics in Science Intern working with Environment for the Americas at Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. This will be my second year at Glen Canyon where I will be continuing the bat monitoring work that was started in 2016.

I have a Bachelor of Science in ecology and evolutionary biology from the University of California, Santa Cruz and I am currently working on a Master of Science degree in environmental science and technology at California State University, Fullerton. After graduating I am interested in pursuing a career with the National Park Service, US. Forest Service or other related agencies where I can use my knowledge to preserve and protect natural resources in federally managed lands.

When I am not studying, I love hiking with my golden retriever named Dallas. We spend a lot of time at our local mountains where I can admire our native flora. I am nuts about nature and I enjoy learning about native plants and wildlife. This year I hope to dip my toe in the world of fungi and lichen!

I also enjoy sharing my knowledge with others, I keep an Instagram account where I feature photographs of California native species. Recently I began doing short nature videos where I encourage folk to explore their naturalist side. My first video was on how to identify backyard birds!

I am excited to start my internship at Glen Canyon National Recreation Area and share my experience through this blog so stay tuned for future posts!
