Orion’s New Editorial Intern

Fresh from Yellowstone National Park, Katie Yale is joining Orion in January to slave away in the bowels of the mailroom. Katie comes at Orion with both barrels blazing — not only is she an accomplished and published poet, she also has an MS degree in environmental studies from the University of Montana and extensive field experience studying critters in Colorado and Yellowstone. Her mentors include Orion columnist Bob Pyle, and Doug Smith, leader of the Yellowstone Wolf Recovery Project. We’re delighted to have Katie on board, and expect her to be with us at the Orion offices at least until June of this year.
