What the students are saying....The USGS/TNC Moab internship was definitely the best field work experience I’ve ever had. Not only were all the people incredibly motivated and fun to work with, but made sure that I got what I wanted out of the internship and that I knew what the data was being used for. I was able to work on so many different projects and see what large scale research looks like at each step of the research process. I learned so many valuable skills both in the field and in the office. I also got to live in one of the most incredible and beautiful places in the world.   ~Hannah Johnson
