Hey, my name is Phillip Jacques and I am from Eau Claire, WI. I am currently a junior at the University of Wisconsin Eau – Claire and I am majoring in Organismal Form and Function Biology. I achieved the Eagle Scout award after many years of Boyscouts and I even got the opportunity to be the project leader of a horse corral for a new park in Wisconsin. I really enjoy camping, socializing with people, ﬁshing, and being active outside. Two main philosophies that I am driven by are to know more today about the world than yesterday and to live life to the fullest. I do plan on becoming an entomologist someday and I believe that this Umatilla National Forest internship will give me a greater understanding of an active biology career.
