Writing Fellows

Projects & Awards

During the 2013-2014 school year, Writing Fellows will be collaborating with the Dahlem Conservancy and naturalist/stewardship coordinator Gary Siegrist and volunteer Bill Strohaver to create a land management plan for a 60+ acre section of the Dahlem Center. Writing Fellows will identify invasive species, map their location using GPS locaters, and participate in the removal of non-native species and the reintroduction of native species.
