Education and Communication Fellow
Growing up on an acreage near Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Emily spent much of her childhood exploring the land in her own backyard. Numerous family vacations to state and national parks helped to further spark her interest in nature and conservation. In 2019, Emily graduated from Augustana University with a Bachelor’s degree in Biology and Spanish and an emphasis in Ecology and Environmental Science. Throughout the past three years, she has worked teaching environmental education and outdoor skills to people of all ages. She is excited to learn even more about environmental education and to help educate future generations about conservation, land use, and sustainability. In her free time, Emily enjoys traveling, hiking, cooking, and playing the clarinet and piano.
