Following a six-month AmeriCorps tenure as a Stewardship Technician with LTC in 2013, Caitlin Donnelly has stayed on to help out in both the stewardship and land protection departments. After growing up in Harbor Springs, Caitlin first attended Michigan State University in the pre-vet program, later switching to the Fisheries and Wildlife program. “My greatest memory of college is my study abroad trip to Svalbard, in Arctic Norway. I spent time on an ice breaker, at approximately 80 degrees north, where I saw ice as far as the eye could see, glaciers, reindeer, sea and bird life, and of course polar bears in their natural habitat.” After graduation, Caitlin backpacked extensively in Argentina, Chile, and Peru, and then returned to northern Michigan to work and volunteer as an environmental educator and continue working at the Harbor Springs Marina. “I cannot be more grateful for this opportunity to take advantage of everything the Conservancy has to offer,” Caitlin said. “I look forward to being involved in an extremely respected and successful organization, learning from everyone on staff.”
