Emily is a Grades of Green intern in the New York office. She earned a degree in Environmental Studies and Government at Bowdoin College, where she had the opportunity to apply climate change research to community resilience initiatives. In 2014, at Bowdoin’s Scientific Station, she wrote an environmental blog that translated student field conservation science into journalism for a general audience, because she believes that everyone should learn about the amazing ecosystems that sustain our planet. As an Environmental Studies Fellow, she worked on forming a Food Council that revitalized sustainable farming and fishing in Maine. She was a member of the Education Committee, which campaigned to get kids involved in school gardens and local food programs. She is passionate about the power of hands-on experiences to build a lifelong love for the planet and is excited to be part of a team that is dedicated to inspiring future generations to care for and protect the earth.
