My name is Andrew Prom, and I am one of the 2020 summer interns at Starker Forests. This summer, we decided to start a blog by multiple members of the crew in order to allow everyone in the public to gain a little more information about exactly what Starker Forests does and what we, interns, are working on.
Going forward, I’ll dive deeper into what my summer working for Starker has looked like, but to begin, I’ll provide a brief background of myself.
Currently, I am going into my Junior year of college at Oregon State University to pursue a Forest Engineering degree. Part of my degree includes 6 months of work experience, so my Starker internship not only helps me gain knowledge and real-world experience but also serves as part of my degree. I am from Molalla, Oregon, and have lived there my whole life. Unlike some of the crew, I don’t have any family ties to forestry, however, my passion for the outdoors my whole life helped draw me towards this career path.
So far this summer, I have already learned so much working for Starker Forests, and I can’t wait to share more of what I have been working on with you all through this blog and answering any questions you may have.
