Hannah Thompson, Stewardship Intern

Hannah assists in the coordination of streambank restoration, research, and native plant propagation. Currently, Hannah is enrolled as an undergraduate Biology major and mathematics minor at Samford University, where she studies plants, works as a writing tutor, and rows for the crew team. Although in her younger years Hannah had plans of becoming a cranberry farmer (standing in a pool of cranberries simply looked like too much fun to pass up), she first entered college resolved to join the medical world as a therapist. Nevertheless, her curiosity for natural wonders, care for the land and the people who live on it, and keen fondness for all things plant-related, has redirected her path towards the botanical field. Hannah intends to cultivate both plants and community throughout her internship with Cahaba River Society and beyond.
