My name is Tomoya Paul Lamberson. I was born and raised in Yorktown, Virginia and am currently a senior at the University of Mary Washington majoring in Sociology. I originally joined the SCA to further my experiences in different fields of work outdoors along with opening myself up to different career opportunities. After my experience last summer as a trail maintenance intern I knew I would continue my service with the SCA. This summer, as a native plant corps member I plan on expanding my knowledge on the local invasive and non-invasive plant species along with invasive removal techniques. Other than that I am positive I will have a great experience and form many new friendships.
