Mark grew up in the small town of Tolland, CT, and is now a senior at Keene State College, with a double major in Environmental Studies and Geography. His capstone research was focused on assessing the capacity of culverts in the Ferguson Brook watershed to handle increased flooding associated with climate change. After graduation, he hopes to pursue a career as an urban planner, natural resource manager, or climate change scientist.
He 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.
