I am eager to experience everything this park has to offer
During his few short months working with us as a Conservation Intern, Edgar swiftly networked with Civicorps Board Member (and alum) Eduardo Chaidez. Eduardo helped Edgar land a job as a Park Ranger with the National Park Service at John Muir National Historic Site in Martinez, CA.
“I am very excited to get started here with the National Park Service,” says Edgar. “It’s been a journey to get to where I am now, having worked and interned at various East Bay Regional Park District locations where I networked with various EBRPD firefighters. I’m a 24 year old part time student studying anthropology at CSU-EB, having transferred from Berkeley City College. My goal is to one day participate in fighting wildfires, having done many fuel reduction projects across the Bay Area. I am eager to learn and experience everything this park has to offer, as well as exploring the park service as a whole.”
