I plan on completing a podcast project that focuses on a prescribed/scheduled burn area in Pennsylvania to explain to residents and interested people what the ecological and historical importance of scheduled and controlled burns are. I will be doing research, interviews with important people from places like the Nature Conservancy and the PA Game Commision and my own research in a Dendrochronology lab to create a story to be shared and referenced. I will also be writing a journalistic article on medium where I can imbed videos, photos, and charts.
