Granville County Student Serving as Land Stewardship Intern

June 20, 2016

Hannah Rank of Granville County will serve as Tar River Land Conservancy’s stewardship intern this summer.  Ms. Rank will be working in the field visiting many of the Conservancy’s protected properties across an eight-county region.  During the spring of 2015, Ms. Rank interned at the Robert E. Lee Soil and Water Conservation District based in Amherst, Virginia, where she conducted stream monitoring and mapped critical areas for conservation practices.

Ms. Rank is a 2012 graduate of Granville Central High School.  Presently, she is a senior at North Carolina State University where she is majoring in Environmental Science with a minor in Applied Ecology.  She previously attended Sweet Briar College in Virginia.  Ms. Rank enjoys horseback riding, hiking, and camping in her free time, and keeps horses on her family’s property in western Granville County.

Ms. Rank looks forward to spending her summer at TRLC, where she will be able to contribute to the preservation of our area’s natural beauty, farms, and woodlands.  “We are fortunate to have Hannah join our team this summer,” noted Derek Halberg, TRLC’s Executive Director.  “She brings valuable experience working with landowners and practical knowledge of both conservation and land management in our region.”
