I return from 9 weeks of work at none other than Moose River Outpost. After spending so much time in the woods, observing and reflecting, I am somewhat unsettled by returning to society…
This summer brought so much beauty, however, and although I could write essays on the experiences, lessons, challenges, and victories of the past two months, I rather just show you.
Every time I return to MRO, I realize that environmentalism is so much more than pure science or policy or analysis. Environmentalism is that initial experience with nature that prompts something emotionally and spiritually powerful, and having the opportunity to re-experience that this summer just makes studying environmental science that much better.
So without further delay, here are some of my favorite moments from the summer!
