WEN Interns & volunteers


Kyle Wonders (he/him)

UM Intern 

Kyle grew up in Southern California and is currently a student at University of Montana. He is pursuing a degree in Wildlife Biology with a minor in Climate Change Studies and Nonprofit Administration.  He brings a passion for environmental education.  Through his studies he has become deeply engaged with how climate change is impacting local waterways, and during his time as an intern is hoping to design teaching materials about that very topic. His favorite part about teaching in the field is not only to get students to learn about their watersheds, but also about all the wonderful aspects of the natural world that rely upon it. Kyle is a certified Montana Master Naturalist. 


Aaron Henderson (he/him) 

UM Intern 

Aaron is currently attending school at the University of Montana, working towards a BS in Geosciences and a GIS certificate. His love of geology and fascination with the interaction between rocks and water spurred him to volunteer with WEN in 2021. He applied for an internship during the Summer of 2022 so that he could work more with the wonderful team at WEN and gain as much knowledge and experience as possible. In his free time, he loves to spend time outside and especially enjoys playing disc golf with his girlfriend. 


Volunteer of the Month 

Every month WEN likes to highlight one of our outstanding volunteers. This month we want to highlight the amazing Yvonne. Yvonne has been living in Missoula since 2008. She got her undergraduate degree in Biology in Richmond VA and a masters at UM in Environmental Studies. We have really appreciated all of the time she has dedicated to our large woody surveys and wading up the creek with us. Yvonne offers great perspective and expertise on natural systems and we are grateful to have her on the WEN team! Thanks Yvonne!
