Mississippi National River and Recreation Area
Tamara Few was born and raised in Burnsville, MN, and obtained her Associate of Arts degree at a local community college before transferring to the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities. While at the UMN, she gained conservation experience from a summer internship at a non-profit in New Hampshire where she primarily scuba-dived to remove invasive variable milfoil. Tamara also tutored middle and high schoolers at a local school district while attending college. She received her Bachelor's of Science in Fisheries, Wildlife, and Conservation Biology in the summer of 2018. She worked as a special education assistant for 8 the graders and preschoolers after she graduated. Last summer, she was a crew leader for the Conservation Corps of Minnesota and Iowa’s Summer Youth Corps program. She enjoys reading, spending time with her poodle, and taking road trips to National Parks with friends.
Tamara is excited to have her first, professional National Park Service experience with the Mississippi National River and Recreation Area in her home state. She is most excited to be a part of the volunteers’ evolving relationship with the 72 mile long National Park along with deepening her own appreciation for the mighty Mississippi River.
