Stephanie Nelson – Iḷisaġvik College Student Spotlight

Stephanie Nelson – Iḷisaġvik College Student SpotlightMeet our new spotlighted student — Stephanie Nelson of Barrow! You may know Stephanie’s parents, April Brower and Ned Nelson.

As a camper in the Eider Journey Camp, her favorite part is hiking on the tundra. The Eider Journey course is run by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and it addresses the conservation and management issues of Steller’s eiders. At the camp, students work with biologists to develop and understanding of the needs of the eiders. Stephanie does not know what she wants to be when she gets older, but she does enjoy playing basketball. To anyone interested in camp, she encourages them to “go for it!” Congratulations Stephanie!
