Humboldt State University

  • Environmental Science and Management

I am eager to learn about various aspects of environmental science, but my main focuses are exploring environmentally conscious techniques to support soil conservation and using GIS to develop green urbanism in low-income, marginalized communities. Ultimately, I want to use my STEM background to tackle climate change issues and diversify the conservation movement to promote a sustainable, inclusive environment.

Support the Conservation Scholars Program

The Conservation Scholars Fund directly supports students who are pursuing a career in conservation through the Doris Duke Conservation Scholars Program at the University of Washington. Effective conservation strategies are inclusive, involving a diversity of stakeholders and incorporating multiple values. Yet, the conservation community does not reflect the collective voice of our country. Without a significant, serious and immediate increase in diversity and inclusion, the conservation community will become a movement of the past instead of a guiding principle of the future. Our program aims to change that.
