My name is Brennan Wilkins. I am a senior at the Marvelwood School. I will be going to Paul Smith’s College in the fall of 2022, majoring in Fishery and Wildlife Sciences.
For four years at Marvelwood, I have been helping my teacher and advisor Laurie Doss to band and study birds at the land trusts MAPS (Monitoring Avian Productivity and Survivorship) banding stations in the town of Kent. I also helped her with Purple Martin banding for three years during the summers and participated in the University of Connecticut’s Natural Resources Conservation. Academy Conservation Ambassador Program.
My project was a StoryMap that focused on swallows and swift species in Kent, CT. I have also been a member of Marvelwood’s Envirothon team for the past three years. I have been interested in nature since a very young age, and I hope to continue to study and learn as much as I can in the coming years.
