30 May Just The Beginning… by Jacob Nieto
My name is Jacob Nieto. I live in Matteson, Illinois one of the south suburbs of Chicago. I graduated from Illinois State University with a bachelor’s degree in Biological Sciences. Some fun facts about me… I like to go camping, fishing, hiking, disc golfing, essentially anything that involves being outdoors. I find my passion in nature and organisms that can be found within. Most of my studies revolved around animal identification, behavior, and understanding the ecosystems that they are involved in.
This summer I will be working at Indiana Dunes National Park as a Fish and Feathers Intern. This experience is amazing because my goal is to work with the National Park Services as a Ranger. I am extremely excited for this opportunity and am looking forward to to giving back to a community that has been part of my life since I was a child. I am looking forward to learning about my local National Park and being able to share my newfound knowledge with the community.
Im very excited to share this journey with you all!
