Hey everybody, I’m James Kramer. I’m from Ramsey, NJ and I study Environmental Science and Policy at the University of Maryland. Since I was a child, I’ve wanted to go places where I could make the most of my favorite outdoor activities. When the Umatilla Trail Crew opportunity presented itself to me, I just could not say no.
This spring I interned with the Anacostia Watershed Society, working on various restoration projects in D.C. and Maryland. I’ve volunteered for the Nature Conservancy in Johnsonburg, NJ doing trail work there and also participating in a deer management program. In my spare time I love to go fishing, hunting, hiking, birding, boating, and playing Ultimate. By working in Umatilla National Forest, I hope to build on environmental knowledge and build strong bonds with new people.
