“Hello everyone! My name is Jennifer Duvall, and I am thrilled to begin interning for Patapsco Heritage Greenway this year. I recently graduated from the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) with a Bachelor’s degree in Environmental Science & Geography. While a student at UMBC, I worked as a forest technician where I studied urban forest growth and dynamics. Through that work I discovered my love for ecology, field work, and environmental issues. After graduating, I began working for the Baltimore Ecosystem Study where I researched different plant species in residential yards of Baltimore City. Moving forward, I am excited to be a part of the Patapsco Heritage Greenway community and continue sharing my passion for environmental science.”
