Thanks, Yengsoua!

Marking storm drains with youth groups, measuring trees, removing invasive species — it was all in a week's work for Yengsoua Lee. 

Although here a short time through an internship program with Mississippi Watershed Management Organization and the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board, Yengsoua (pronounced Yeng-shu-a) experienced a breadth of FMR programming and was able to participate in a variety of field and office events, providing invaluable help to multiple FMR staff. In turn, Yengsoua’s experience at FMR and other Twin Cities environmental organizations will help him as he pursues a degree in environmental science and an eventual career in the environmental field.
