For my fourth co-op work term, I worked with the Burns Bog Conservation Society in Delta. As a member of the Marketing & Outreach team, my role was to advocate for the conservation of Burns Bog at local community events. It’s been quite an experience attending events throughout the lower mainland, and meeting a variety of people of varying backgrounds. Through meeting these unique individuals, I’ve become better able cater my message to best engage with a particular crowd. Overall, this experience improved my confidence in public engagement and event planning, and I look forward putting those skills to use in the future.
