Hi! I’m Margaret Windingstad, the current intern from the MN Conservation Corps at the Fillmore SWCD.
I’ll be here until August 12th dipping my toes into a ton of different projects to gain experience in multiple aspects of conservation and natural resource management. I’m particularly looking forward to gathering water quality data and learning how to manage said data.
I grew up on the East side of Saint Paul and now study geology and watershed sciences at Colorado State University. This is my first time in Preston so I’m excited to explore the area, especially nearby caves and springs. After I get my degree, I’m planning on moving back to Minnesota to work on geology-related natural hazard management.
In my free time I enjoy hiking, swimming, (anything that will get me outside), as well as reading and dancing.
