Cover of New Hampshire Welcomes the Minions book written by our 2010 LEAF interns!
Meet Ashley, Claudia, Nadia, Andrea, and their mentor, Deanna. They are the New Hampshire Chapter's 2015 crop of LEAF interns: Leaders in Environmental Action for the Future. You'll get to know them well through their blog, From Boroughs To Birches.
Under Deanna's encouraging eyes and The Nature Conservancy's thoughtful guidance, the four girls will hike, boat, shovel, lug and swim their way around the Granite State, experiencing the wonders of a place far from the pavement, tall buildings, honking horns and hustle bustle of the Big Apple. They'll encounter firsts: first campfires, first paddle trips and first times staring down an invasive plant - and pulling it mercilessly.
It is on their blog that they'll tell their story along the way, sharing their thoughts, photos and videos in their own words. We hope that you'll follow along and share in their journey. It's sure to take many twists and turns as they move from the boroughs to the birches!
