My name is Matt Giljahn and I'm addicted. I'm hooked. I need my fix and the SCA's giving it to me this summer. I'm an outdoors-aholic. The outdoors have taken me on countless adventures all over the states from lonely backcountry trails to wild festivals and events. I'm currently double majoring in Environmental Science and Communications at Miami University (Ohio) where I'll graduate in May 2011. I'm excited for this summer in Mammoth Cave, Kentucky to rough up some non-native and invasive species. No prisoners. No exceptions. By the end of the summer I hope to come out with new skills, friendships, stories, and a couple home-style Kentucky recipes!

Tim has been going to Johnson State College in Johnson, VT for the past 4 years. He just graduated this spring with a degree in Environmental Science concentrating in natural resources. Tim is eager to get a change from college antics, and live a relaxing summer away from the everyday hassles such as paying rent and getting assignments in on time. He has recently gotten into cycling and mountain biking. He also loves throwing a Frisbee around, and general exploration on nature walks. Tim can’t wait to gain more experience in the field, and see what everyone is talking about when they say, “the Adirondacks are the best mountains of the east.”
