New OSS Summer Technicians!
Hello! My name is Amaylia and I am stoked to be living here in the Okanagan and working as part of the Okanagan-Similkameen Stewardship Society this Summer. I am a current student at Thompson Rivers University and I am in my final year of the Natural Resource Science Program where my passion for everything outdoors from bugs to birds has grown exponentially. This summer I hope to learn lots about the plants, people and wildlife in the Okanagan-Similkameen region as well as help restore natural communities in order to improve ecosystem functioning. In my spare time I will be busy exploring this beautiful area and might even have to take a rockclimbing lesson or two! #okanagan #similkameen #stewardship #womaninstem
Hello, my name is Sophia Reimer and I will be working for the OSS as a Field Technician this summer. Last year I graduated from UBCO with a degree in Biology, focusing on ecology and conservation. Many of my summer vacations growing up included camping and hiking trips which inspired my love for wildlife and the outdoors. I have lived in the Okanagan my whole life and I am excited for the opportunity to help protect and conserve this beautiful land. I am looking forward to learning new things and further exploring this amazing place.
