Last weekend we welcomed a new crew member

6/11/10 – Last weekend we welcomed a new crew member to Sawbill, Jessica Hemmer. Jessica, in the fall, will be entering her Junior year at Saint Cloud State University, where she is majoring in ecology and field biology and takes an interest in studying animal populations and behavior.
Jessica grew up in St. Cloud, but has spent a lot of time in the Boundary Waters, visiting at least once a year for the past five years. She visited Sawbill for the first time last year, and she traveled the Kelso Loop with her family. She loved the experience and the area so much that she decided to come back and work at Sawbill for the summer.
Her favorite job so far is administering the Sawbill campground, mostly because she likes being outside and enjoys the quiet, almost ascetic serenity of the area. She most enjoys the sites that are close to the lake, and the privacy that all the sites provide.
