Meet University College grad Hannah Kopp. Hannah earned her bachelor's degree in specialized studies with a focus in natural resource conservation Ohio University. She's putting her unique degree to work monitoring and surveying streams with the Monday Creek Watershed team as an AmeriCorps member serving with Rural Action's Appalachian Ohio Restore Corps.

#WeAreAmeriCorps
Hannah Kopp, Monday Creek Watershed, Rural Action

"Despite a global pandemic, AmeriCorps has helped me stay connected to the community. I learned about the historic background of the communities in southeastern Ohio through tours like the People of Color exhibit in Tablertown. Not only have I been able to (distantly) meet community members, I also have gotten to know the landscape of the community through my work monitoring and surveying streams with the Monday Creek team. Our Fall Tour in October was a great example of this. It gave us the means to explore the watershed while engaging community members about the past, present, and future of acid mine drainage treatment."

National Service with the Appalachian Ohio Restore Corps is a way to “get your hands dirty” while helping local communities. The skills and connections you gain will stay with you for the rest of your life. Learn more:
