I can’t believe the AEO Sandy Recovery Crew has already finished our week of conservation work at Floyd Bennet Field in Gateway National Recreation Area.

The crew woke up early on the first day to bright sunlight in our tents. Birds were shouting from the trees, and a raccoon had gotten into our food stores during the night. Our campsite at Floyd Bennet Field is a leafy, grassy, green oasis that looks rural despite being located in southeastern Brooklyn.

For the last four years I’ve lived as a college student in New York City. I knew I wanted to spend my last summer here exploring and appreciating this crazy, vibrant, unexpected city.
Sandy Disaster Relief
- Field Site Name
Sandy Disaster Relief, NY
New England (ME, RI, NH, NY)
- Dream Job
- The person who inspires me post is…
Mary Oliver (poet) “Tell me, what is it you plan to do/with your one wild and precious life?”
- If I were a shape-shifter, I’d turn into…
a wolf. They are strong, clever, and playful, can cover amazing distances, and live in some of my favorite places.
- Most memorable outdoor moment
Sending twelve campers back down a three mile hike in North Carolina while keeping an eye on the visitor-tamed-bear who thought we were bringing him lunch. This is why we DON’T feed wild animals, guys!
- Favorite Song
“Brand New Days” Joshua Radin
“You have brains in your head/You have feet in your shoes/You can steer yourself any direction you choose”-Dr.Seuss
This is my second summer working with the SCA (last year as a Community Crew Leader in Boston). I’m so excited to be back!
