Welcome Summer Interns

     COA welcomes Chris Ackerman, a native of Fair Haven, NJ, to our team as a summer 2005 legal intern.  Chris has his Masters of Studies in Environmental Law from Vermont Law School (VLS), and will complete his Juris Doctor at VLS in Spring 2006.  Chris is researching the scope and enforcement options of the Clean Water Act section 401 Water Quality Certificates.  Throughout the summer Chris will be researching municipal stormwater plans, the effects of offshore wind development on marine water quality, land use policies to reduce sedimentation of waterways, as well as investigating other environmental enforcement and regulatory compliance issues.

     Emily Jack-Scott also joined COA’s team this summer as an intern at the Wildwood office.  A native Philadelphian, she is a sophomore at Yale University as an Ecology and Evolutionary Biology major.  This summer, Emily will help coordinate and lead marine education programs, organize volunteers and media outreach, as well as assist with the daily duties at the office, also home of the Institute of Coastal Education (ICE).
