Plover River Watershed GIS Intern Hired

Through the support of a DNR river grant, NCCT hired a part-time Plover River Watershed GIS Intern. Sean Piette from Duluth, Minnesota is a Natural Resource Planning major at UWSP and was hired to assist staff, volunteers, and develop a GIS analysis on the Plover River watershed. Sean is currently involved in the University of Wisconsin’s Stevens Point organization called the Land Conservation Society as the treasurerUntitled, as well as involved with many other organizations. He is a very passionate and hardworking individual that will provide much assistance and success for this grant. This grant allows NCCT to inform and encourage private landowners to utilize voluntary conservation options as a means to protect priority lands in/near the Plover River. April Opatik, Project Director and former GIS Intern, will aid NCCT in outreach and developmental opportunities to help complete the objectives of this grant. By the end of this grant, NCCT hopes to have developed a relationship with Plover River landowners and protected sensitive areas. Sean is very grateful for this opportunity and hopes to gain valuable conservation experience. NCCT is grateful to UWSP and the DNR for this mutually beneficial opportunity and welcomes Sean to the NCCT family!
