ARCC Sustainability is excited to have Brent Paulson serving the college as our 2020-2021 Minnesota GreenCorps Member! Brent has been serving Anoka-Ramsey by helping us to assess our campus greenhouse gas usage. His next project will be assisting in the creation of an action plan to improve our campus sustainability efforts.
Brent recently graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he majored in Conservation Biology and Environmental Studies, with the intent of pursuing a career in conservation and sustainability. Given the GreenCorps’ heavy emphasis on preserving the environment (specifically through waste reduction), he knew that it would offer him experience that would be invaluable for his career interests. Brent chose to serve in the MN GreenCorps program as it will allow him to take part in a project that is related to his career interests and also allow him to do work that has a real impact in the state that he’s grown up in. Through the GreenCorps program, he will be able to apply what he’s learned throughout college in work that he is passionate about.
