Reflections on a Year of Service

AmeriCorpsLogoWith the beginning of December, and AmeriCorps graduation drawing near, I am starting to realize that my twelve months, 1700 hours of service, are drawing to a close. As I prepare to pass the torch to the next AmeriCorps member coming in January, I look back on all I’ve experienced. What a great year, and I’d like to thank everyone in the community who welcomed me so warmly, and helped make this year the perfect experience that it has been. From growing a sunflower garden, organizing events like the Living with Wildlife Festival, to updating our website and sending out newsletters, it has been a year of outreach, community, education, and fun.

I am excited to stay in Bishop, with it’s mountain vistas and wide open skies, I’m not quite ready to leave yet. I have accepted a part time position with ESLT, staying on as Outreach Coordinator, continuing to assist the ESLT team in furthering our mission of helping landowners to preserve the Eastern Sierra’s rural lands.
