My WLA Journey

This week’s blog is a guest post written by Elizabeth B., a Bucktails and Drummers alumni. Elizabeth is a sophomore at Penn State DuBois pursuing her associate degree in wildlife technology and her bachelor’s degree in forest ecosystem management.

Elizabeth is very thankful for the opportunity to attend WLA and grow in her passion for conservation.
