Courtney Dillon takes a hiking break next to a brook in spring flow.Courtney grew up in Rindge, NH, and is now a senior at Keene State College, where she is pursuing a B.S. in Environmental Studies. Her capstone research was focused on sapling regeneration and mature tree mortality following a wildfire on Harris Center-conserved lands in Stoddard.

She is one of four KSC students who were hired in 2017 to conduct ecological research, assist with stewardship and environmental education activities, and gain specialized training and firsthand experience with many facets of the Harris Center’s diverse conservation and education work as part of our summer conservation internship program with the KSC Environmental Studies Department.
