    Determining Historical Use of and Future Demand for Native Plant Material by New England Departments of Transportation

    Supervisors: Julia Kuzovkina (professor, Department of Plant Science and Landscape Architecture) and John Campanelli (graduate student); office: WBYoung #130

    Title: Determining Historical Use of and Future Demand for Native Plant Material by New England Departments of Transportation

    Duration: May 20 -August 18, 2022; work hours flexible

    Learning objectives: extension program development, design and analysis of surveys and focus group interviews; effective communication with government agencies

    The “ownership” commitment for mentoring the intern will include:

    1. Learning Agreement
    2. Mid-summer evaluation
    3. End of Summer Evaluations
    4. AGNR 3681 Course Requirements, including Reflection paper and Updated résumé

    Project Overview: New England Departments of Transportation (DOTs) historically have revegetated roadsides using introduced cool-season turfgrasses. Recent policy changes encourage the use of native plants to revegetate roadsides because they provide greater ecological benefits and require more sustainable maintenance practices. However, because no large-scale native seed production exists in the New England region, the New England Transportation Consortium (NETC), which pools the research funds of all six New England DOTs, awarded us a grant to help develop a native plant material supply chain for our region and strategies for managing native plant communities along roadsides.

    As part of our research for this project, we need to determine the history of how each state DOT has used native plant materials, the demand that will exist in the future for native plant material, and the amount of funds DOTs have spent and plan to spend on roadside maintenance. We will collect such data using focus groups and surveys, most of which we currently plan to conduct remotely and virtually using COVID prevention protocols.

    We plan to assign an intern the following tasks:

    1. Assist in the administering of focus group and individual surveys of DOT departments associated with roadside revegetation efforts
    2. Transcribe recordings of focus group interviews
    3. Collect data from focus groups and surveys
    4. Assist in the analysis of collected data

    As part of the internship, we plan on introducing the intern to the native seed production supply chain that currently exists in our region by visiting those farms and organizations with which we are partnering.  We also plan to provide the intern with visits to experimental trials and demonstration plots we will be conducting along roadsides. These trips will familiarize the intern with an overall vision of the scope of project and research.

    Environmental Education – Storrs

     Position Description

    Supervisor’s name, title, office location and the intern’s proposed project title:

    • Nicole Freidenfelds, Visiting Assistant Extension Educator 
    • Storrs Campus, Young Bldg., Room 230
    • Environmental Education (EE) Intern 

    What will be the intern’s specific task/project responsibilities?

    • Assist with developing hands-on field activities, lessons and materials for UConn Natural Resources Conservation Academy programs (NRCA; http://nrca.uconn.edu/) and the UConn Pre-College Summer (PCS) Environmental Conservation course (https://precollege-summer.uconn.edu/courses/environmental-conservation/). These programs cover a range of environmental topics, including wildlife & fisheries, water & green infrastructure, and forestry, but we are open to exploring environmental topics of interest to the EE intern. 

      • Implement environmental education programing in collaboration with the Supervisor and NRCA coordinators. The EE intern will primarily be involved with the PCS Environmental Conservation course (July 31-August 6), but there is potential for the EE intern to assist with other NRCA programs, such as Urban Forestry workshops. 

      • Contribute to the development of an NRCA database that will be used to organize data on program participants and community conservation project impacts. The data will be used in future publications, presentations, and grant proposals. 

      UConn Natural Resources Conservation Academy (NRCA; http://nrca.uconn.edu/) comprises innovative conservation programs that engage teens and adult volunteers in natural resource science and mapping technology. The NRCA challenges traditional models of leadership, increases innovation and capacity to implement environmental solutions, and crosses age and ability boundaries to develop a more inclusive and equitable environmental sector. We are looking to further that mission by incorporating more undergraduate student leaders into the development and running of NRCA programs. The EE intern’s responsibilities will be to: 

      When will you need the intern (provide specific and detailed date ranges and work times)?

      • The EE intern is needed for 10 weeks, from June 6-August 12, 2022. During this time, work hours will average 20 hours per week, but may be distributed unevenly depending on which programs the EE intern helps implement.

      i. During non-environmental education programming weeks, the EE intern will complete their hours within the standard work week (e.g., Monday-Friday 9am-5pm). 

      ii. During the PCS Environmental Conservation course (July 31-August 6), the EE intern will work Monday-Friday 9am-5pm. 

      iii. If the EE intern chooses to assist with the Urban Forestry Workshops, the dates and times are yet to-be-determined. It is possible that one or more of these events will take place during non-standard hours (e.g., weekend and/or evening). The workshops will be located off campus and travel will be provided. 

      iv. Overall, hours during the June 6-July 30 period are flexible and can be negotiated to accommodate the hours that the intern will be working during non-standard work hours with the NRCA programs. 

       

      What will be the top two or three learning objectives for the intern?

      • Demonstrate various field techniques used by environmental professionals and taught in NRCA environmental education programs (e.g., water quality sampling, small mammal trapping, invasive plant identification) 

      • Develop environmental education materials for diverse teen audiences (e.g., resource guides, activities, infographics) 

      • Enter and organize data from multiple sources into a Microsoft Access database  As the supervisor, what type of “ownership” commitment will you be making toward mentoring the intern? 

      As the supervisor, I commit to working collaboratively with the intern on the development of environmental education materials and database. At a minimum, the intern will have weekly check-in meetings with me, but more often than not, we will have check-ins daily or every other day, especially as we near the dates of the environmental programs. The student will be stationed in the Natural Resources Conservation Academy office, and so these check-ins may occur informally as we work together to develop program materials. 

      As supervisor, I also commit to the following mentorship responsibilities: 

      a. Initial goal-setting plan 

      b. Mid-summer evaluation 

      c. End of summer evaluation

      Background

      The Connecticut Trail Finder (https://cttrailfinder.com) is a statewide trails website managed by UConn Extension that provides easy searching and access to information about the wide spectrum of active outdoor opportunities throughout Connecticut. The goal is to help people get out, be active, and explore Connecticut’s interesting places.

      One critical piece of each Trail Finder posting is the trail map. The mapping information (trail lines and points of interest) come to us in many different formats ranging from high quality GIS to downloads from a smart phone and everything in between. The files have varying attribution and quality. In all cases, the line and point files needs to be imported, checked, and processed before they can be uploaded to Trail Finder. A secondary objective the is the creation of a statewide trails GIS layer. The lines and points of each trail posting are contributing to this statewide layer which will eventually be made available through the CT ECO[1] website.

      Job description

      The primary task is to support Trail Finder GIS data collection and processing. After training, the intern will work with existing GIS files from organizations like the CT Dept. of Energy and Environmental Protection (DEEP), the CT Forest and Parks Association (CFPA), Councils of Governments (COGs), municipalities, land trusts and more.

      • Review and synthesize trail data from multiple sources and in comparison with existing maps,
      • Edit and digitize point and line features including moving, merging, splitting and exploding,
      • Clearly note any issues or uncertainties during data processing to be shared with supervisor and trail manager, and
      • Add attribution to points and line segments.

      Depending on location and ability to travel, there may be opportunities to collect trail data and photos in the field and work on field data collection methodology.

      The intern will be part of the UConn Trails team and will attend meetings and learn about the many facets and impacts of the trails projects.

      • Learn about and interact with trail managing organizations across Connecticut.
      • Learn about the UConn Extension Trails Team and the UConn Center for Land Use Education and Research (CLEAR).

      Supervisor Commitment

      In addition to assisting with the required learning documentation and resume review, the supervisor will work closely with the intern to train him/her/they on the GIS tasks and methods required. She will also discuss the students interests and, together, determine internship objectives. She will revisit the objectives mid-way through the internship and re-evaluate if necessary. The intern will participate in weekly Trail Team meetings as well as weekly CLEAR Team meetings. The supervisor will encourage the intern to participate in relevant trainings, meetings and activities where connections and career contacts with partner organizations can be made. She will also support the student in identifying additional related learning and career opportunities following the internship experience.
