District Interns featured in Union Bulletin

WWIntern

 

Travis Morrison was recently featured in an article focused on Walla Walla University Engineering students and their work in improving water quality.

‘Morrison, a 2013 graduate of Walla Walla High School, is in his second year at Walla Walla University as a civil engineering major and works as an intern at the Walla Walla County Conservation District.

“Travis has grown up working with his family on a very progressive Walla Walla County farming operation, and he is acutely aware of the importance of soil and water conservation and good natural resource management to landowners,” says Rick Jones, district manager for the Conservation District…Jones says it has been “quite beneficial” for the district to hire student interns who are excited about the technology and tools they use. Two interns from WWU are currently working at the district: Morrison and Heather Noel, who earned a master’s degree in biology at WWU in 2013.  http://union-bulletin.com/news/2015/apr/11/column-engineers-bring-clean-water-ww-and-beyond/

The District is pleased to offer landowners the services of these talented interns in developing conservation projects on their land.
