Hello, my name is Tate Perez and I am a junior at Davis High. I just finished my third season with the DHS Ski Team, meaning I have a lot more free time. I spend my time that I am not skiing or doing school work usually playing bass or working at the batting cages at Playfields where I recently got a job. I wanted to do this internship because I thought it would be a really good way to experience work that I could do in college and even as a career, as I am fairly interested in ecology and environmental science. It seemed hard to say no to an offer like this in high school for something people are lucky to get in college.
My first time in the ditch was really nice, it was super sunny and full of life. I found a few spots marked where the milkweed will grow, but I kept looking until I found number 216, which seemed like it was really calling to me. I’m excited to spend more time in my new home away from home, the ditch.
