Summer at MyRWA just wouldn't be the same without a crew of enthusiastic interns! MyRWA would like to welcome summer interns Caitlin Pohl, Leif Inouye, Gabrielle String, Hillary Monahan, Andy Hrycyna, Rachel Lacomini, and Jacob Henebry. MyRWA is fortunate to have their help in a variety of projects.

Andy Hrycyna of Cambridge is serving as MyRWA’s Water Chestnut Program coordinator. Helping out at corporate and community water chestnuts events is Somerville’s Rachel Lacomini and Cambridge’s Jacob Henebry.

Caitlin and Leif, both students at Tufts University, with Hillary, a student at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, are performing a variety of field work, including: herring habitat assessment, cyanobacteria monitoring, counting migrating eels at Upper Mystic Lake, and assisting with water chestnut removal and rain garden maintenance.

Gabrielle, a PhD candidate at Tufts University, has joined spring interns Elizabeth Koerber, Josh Peters, Katie Creasey, Jenny Ta, Zhibek Junushaliyeva, and Samanta Bajracharya as part of the database and GIS project team. Katie is also working on a flow meter project in Mill Brook.
