Intern Project Symposium - Friday, August 6

Join us for our Summer 2021 BHIC Intern Project Symposium to learn about the independent projects our interns have been working on this season. Each intern will give a 15 minute presentation in the Fleming Education Building and there will be an opportunity for Q&A. Our team is continuously inspired by the creativity and hard work of our Conservancy interns: come learn and celebrate with us! We are also planning on recording the symposium and sharing it online after the event.

When: August 6, 2021 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern Time
Where: Fleming Education Building
