Hello, my name is Amanda Dow, I am a junior at Kalamazoo College majoring in Biology with a concentration in Environmental Studies and a minor in English. I enjoy spending time outdoors, reading in my hammock, and I love the water. I have lived around lakes and streams most of my life: I am from beautiful Traverse City with the Boardman River running through town out to Lake Michigan. My family also has a house on wonderfully picturesque Glen Lake and I have kayaked the Crystal River too many times to count. I have interned at the Glen Lake Association in the past and I look forward to bringing my passion and knowledge of our amazing watersheds to this great organization, and I am excited to learn more!
