STAFF SPOTLIGHT: Caleb Henderson
By Dyhanara Rios
Caleb Henderson is a mentor for the Operation SCUBA program and part of the lake maintenance team at The Meadows Center. He recently participated in an EcoFlight internship program for a Flight Across America, gaining an aerial perspective of several places in the Southwest United States, including Colorado and Utah.
During the EcoFlight trip, Caleb and others had the opportunity to meet with representatives from government agencies and organizations such as the USGS, National Park Service, and others who are influencers in conservation leadership and protecting and assessing public lands. The use of public lands for oil, gas and uranium mining has been a controversial issue for both its environmental and cultural implications on public lands and Native American reservations.
