This summer the Land Trust has had the opportunity to host three interns thanks to funding from two programs. The first is the New York State Conservation Partnership Program (NYSCPP) which provides funding to eligible land trusts across the state. A grant from the NYSCPP funds two of our interns, Tucker Catanzaro and Randy Monica Jr. The second program is the St. Lawrence University Public Interest Corps (SLU PIC) which allows students at St. Lawrence University to work with non-profits in the region. Funding from this program allows us to host Katie Adee.

Katie Adee

My name is Katie Adee, and I am one of the St. Lawrence Land Trusts' summer interns for 2018. I am from Marblehead, Massachusetts and will be a senior at St. Lawrence University in the fall. I will be graduating in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental Studies and a double minor in Peace Studies and African Studies. I have had the opportunity to spend the last three years living in the North Country and getting to know the area. I am extremely excited to work with local landowners as well as community members on maintaining and exploring the beautiful landscapes that are right in our backyard!

Tucker Catanzaro

Hello! My name is Tucker Catanzaro and I'm one of the three interns working at the land trust this summer. I just finished my first year at Hampshire College down in Amherst, MA but I'm a North Country resident through and through. I've been fortunate enough to grow up in Canton, and on Trout Lake during the summer, so I'm eager to do some great work in the local area promoting conservation. I'm looking forward to representing the land trust at the Canton Farmers' Market, working on Hart's Falls, maintaining the website, and everything else!

Randy Monica Jr.

My name is Randy Monica Jr. I am an Environmental Studies major at SUNY Potsdam entering my senior year in the fall. I’m from Malone, NY and my family has strong roots in the North Country. It seemed fitting for me to choose not only an environmental major, but a university in the region to pursue that course of study. During my time working with the St. Lawrence Land Trust I am happy to have the chance to help out with conservation efforts in my home region. In addition to this, I am looking forward to learning more about the geography and environmental opportunities in the area that I would not have otherwise known about.
