Haley Burken is really excited to spend time outside while helping the planet at the same time. She hopes to share her love of the natural environment with her surrounding community in the best way she can. With that in mind, she decided to choose to work as an AmeriCorps team member, as she has seen the great work they have done in the past and how inspired people were who have worked with AmeriCorps.
Haley feels that containing invasive species is probably the most important task in her current AmeriCorps position and she is looking forward to working on this task alongside others who share her same passion for the environment. She is also looking forward to having experience in this field to help her gain a better understanding of where she wants her career path to be for the future.
