My name is Quentin Comus and I am a Senior at Newberg High School. I am also a Student Ambassador with Chehalem Valley Watershed Project; a group of students from Newberg High School who are advocating for the environment through hands-on research, restoration work, and conservation education. With assistance from outdoor professionals and community donors, we identify, design, and implement environmental conservation projects in the Newberg-Dundee area. Specifically, we plan to invest an estimated $350,000 into our local parks, streams, and schools through wildlife habitat restoration, ecological research, water quality monitoring, environmental education programming, and recreation improvements. After graduation this Spring, I plan to attend Oregon State University - Cascades in Bend, Oregon, to major in Natural Resource Education. Following college, I hope to return to Newberg to continue my work in the community through environmental education coordination.
