- Summer 1957 - I was a GS4 student assistant at the Seney National Wildlife Refuge in the upper peninsula of Michigan. My project was an investigation of factors that limited wild rice growth in Seney impoundments.
- Summer 1958 - I was a research intern sponsored by the Student Conservation Association at the Jackon Hole Biological Research Station in Moran, Wyoming. I assisted Charles C. Laing (University of Wyoming) in his evaluation of visitor impact on the Lake Soltude basin in Grand Teton National Park.
I spent two college summers as a research assistant.
