Summer Intern 2014

Meredith Yue, from Deephaven, Minnesota, is a senior at Minnesota State University, Mankato pursuing a major in environmental science. Meredith is interested in both plants and animals and studying how they are interconnected with their environments. While in school, her focus has been mainly vertebrate studies, but she is looking forward to expand her knowledge into botany. Meredith’s interest in environmental science stems from growing up on a lake and being outdoors.  She enjoys traveling, reading and relaxing in her spare time. She is excited to extend her knowledge and experience at the garden!
