The South Nation Conservation (SNC) hired eight students and recent grads as part of its summer employment program this year.

Whether working in a conservation area, supporting natural hazard programs, or delivering environmental outreach programs, students become familiar with how a non-profit organization operates while gathering experience and encountering career opportunities.

“We’re proud to secure investments that contribute to our local economy and give talented students an opportunity to work in their field of study,” said SNC General Manager Angela Coleman in a release. « We are grateful for the hard work and enthusiasm that our local youth bring to support our conservation authority work every summer.”

“I’m very excited to be working for South Nation Conservation this summer,” said Loic-Arnaud Plouffe, a Property and Approvals Student from Hawkesbury. “I’m pleased to be part of an organization that protects, supports and enhances our environment for the benefit of all residents.”

New to the team this year are Allison Talsma, Sarah Derikx, Loic-Arnaud Plouffe and Arielle Noonan. Returning are Alicia Howse, Mary-Louise Sturman, and Hope Boyle. Also returning is Gianmarco Maggiore, a student worker from 2021 who has recently secured a full-time position at the SNC as a Water Resources Analyst.

“We look forward to hiring young and enthusiastic students every summer,” said Coleman. “They are our future generation of leaders and will hopefully go on to become good environmental stewards.”
