Meet Amanda Price, SWAMP Team Member, currently serving with the Mobile Baykeeper organization, in the Mobile Baykeeper AmeriCorps program.
1. What motivated you to join AmeriCorps? I was motivated to join AmeriCorps because I wanted to be part of a team that is working toward preserving the environment for future generations of people and wildlife.
2. What would you like to get out of this service opportunity? I would like to gain hands-on experience in water quality testing and education in order to build upon the knowledge I obtained in college. I would also like to make a difference by educating people about the environment.
3. What will your service focus on for the 2019-20 program year? During this program year, my service will focus on presenting watershed awareness along with training students and adults to be water quality monitors.
4. What are your plans after AmeriCorps? After AmeriCorps, I plan on pursuing a Master’s degree in the field of Biology, maybe specializing in Ornithology. I would also like to further my education in studio art.
Thank you for your service, Amanda!
