My name is David Johnson and I am currently a senior at Central Michigan University double majoring in Environmental Science and Biology. I am 24 years old and originally from Howell, Michigan. Growing up in the Great Lakes state, I developed a strong appreciation for natural resources at a young age. The Student Conservation Association has provided me with a wonderful opportunity to practice this appreciation through service. This summer I am serving with a Native Plant Corps team to assist in the restoration of wetland ecosystems within the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. Throughout this experience my hope for the team is to make a positive impact within the park and surrounding community.
