Hello, my name is Brooke Gauthier. I'm an Envionmental Conservation and Sustainability major and Forestry minor at the University of New Hampshire. I'm from Milford, Connecitcut, but chose to go out of state for college in order to really indulge myself within the vast forests outside of city life. I love being around people and venturing to new places, allowing me to have new experiences and appreciation for nature. I plan on using this website for my professonal writing, lab reports and other environmental themed projects. I hope you enjoy looking through the research conducted, results gathered and knowledge learned about environmental aspects.
My favorite tree is the Eastern Hemlock, and one of the first trees I learned to identify. I love the scaly brown bark that is produced with age and the small, flat, sprayed needles that pertrude off the twigs. During the summer of 2017, I got a tattoo of a pine tree, based off of an Eastern Hemlock, on my ribs. It is supposed to symbolize my love for nature and my experience at UNH. I absolutely love being at UNH and wouldn't want to go to school anywhere else.
