Hello, my Name is Majesty Bordner! I was a 2021 Siegele intern and undergrad student at CSU majoring in Zoology and minoring in Conservation Biology. During the summer I had the opportunity to be apart of the CNHP’s Rollins Pass BioBlitz. It was a wonderful experience all around.
I got the opportunity to help with the planning of the BioBlitz and got to see firsthand what it takes to plan an event like it. During the planning I had the task of creating the flyers for the event and the public education day we held there to inform the public of our findings in the area. I had a lot of fun creating the flyers and I’m happy with how they turned out. During the week of the BioBlitz I had a blast working with and talking to all of the different specialists who showed up to help us document all of plant, bird, and mammal species that we could in Rollins Pass. Helping set up trail cams and doing small mammal trapping using collapsible Sherman live traps were my favorite parts. I also enjoyed learning about bryophytes and how to ID them from the two bryologists who came to the event. Talking and camping with everyone was a blast and definitely one of the most fun and memorable parts of my internship.
