meet our 2016 intern Aaron

An environmental management internship allowed Calgary intern Aaron to combine his passions for problem solving, chemistry, and the environment. “I love finding unique solutions to complex problems while working with others,” he said. “Every group member brings new ideas to each task.”

This summer, Aaron worked on a literary review project for an oil sands tailings pond, conducted bird and amphibian surveys for upcoming roadwork, and completed wetland and habitat assessments. He learned to identify animal tracks, scat, and bird calls and recognize western toad tadpoles, salamander larvae, and damselflies. 

Aaron appreciated the opportunity to explore projects in multiple engineering fields. “The best part has been the caring attitude of the Barr family,” he said. “I couldn’t have asked for a better experience.”
