Interns go far

Sometimes we think the most important thing High Country News does is provide a way station for interns. For most of them, it's a stop after college and a series of less-than-satisfying jobs, before they decide what they will ultimately do.

We had this thought most recently at the March meeting of the American Society for Environmental History, held in Tacoma, Wash. It was provoked by the panel titled "Reclaiming the Unknown Landscape: History and Wetland Restoration across North America."

The two-hour session was organized by Matthew Klingle, a history graduate student at the University of Washington. His talk was titled "Building Duwamish No. 2: Finding and reviving Seattle's Coastal and Intertidal Estuaries."

Another speaker was Bob Wilson, a geography graduate student at the University of British Columbia, speaking on "An Ironic Restoration: Reclaiming Wetlands in the Klamath Basin, 1930-1955."

Commenting on the talks was Ann Vileisis, author of a book on wetlands and identified here as an Independent Scholar. Missing from the description of the panel was the fact that the three were once interns at High Country News. We were thrilled to see them.

Keeping in touch

During the next two months, every subscriber to High Country News will receive a brief survey. It's your chance to tell us what you like or don't like about the paper, to tell us what stories we're missing or could cover better. Response through the years has always been stupendous at 10 percent or better. We thank you for keeping in touch this way and assure you that we take what you say to heart.
