Allie-Skalnik-Nature-ConservancyJunior Allie Skalnik earned some recognition on the West Coast this month for her volunteer work with The Nature Conservancy of Nevada.

Over the summer, Skalnik diligently read more than 100 scientific papers to help the Conservancy fill in missing population data on rare and sensitive wetland-dependent animal species like birds, butterflies, springsnails, river otters, and more.

This data will be used by agency experts to write biological opinions for public lands.

For Skalnik, it was an opportunity to learn more about Nevada’s diverse ecosystems and wetlands.
