Nhia Vang was a member of the Mississippi River Green Team from 2012–2014. During the summer of 2015 he worked at Three Rivers Park District – Kroening Interpretive Center as a naturalist intern, removing invasive plant species from the prairie, surveying the local dragonfly populations, taking care of the animals in the interpretive center and assisting with summer school and camp groups. Nhia especially enjoyed working with the students.
He says being on the Mississippi River Green Team gave him the background knowledge he needed to be able to teach the students. It taught him to have initiative. “Whenever we were going to do something, I was first to go,” Nhia said. He is unsure of his future plans, but would like to continue to build on the experience that he has had working in the environmental field.
