LID Student Co-Op Work Experience

2nd year LID student Vicki Eastland recently completed her Co-op Work Experience with Ambient Design Group, an engineering and landscape architecture firm in Asheville, North Carolina. As part of her 160 hour internship, which she began this summer, Vicki assisted with permitting, site inventory and analysis, and gained experience with the design and construction process. She presented one of the firm's projects, in which Ambient evaluated erosion control measures on a major construction project in Asheville and made recommendations, in detail with other LID students this fall. Vicki has recently accepted an employment position with Ambient Design Group and will work with them part time this spring as she continues her study of LID at Haywood. Her goal is to complete the Program in 2011. (post by Tamara Graham)
