  • Environmental Studies

Hello! My name is Madeline and I’m from Portland, OR! I owe my awe of and love for the outdoors (& so much more) to my parents, having been lucky enough to grow up immersed in the forests of the Pacific Northwest. I am studying Education & Environmental Studies, aspiring to be an environmental educator and learn more of what it means to advocate for social and climate justice collectively. A member of the Wyandot Nation of Kansas, I seek to integrate forms of Indigenous Knowledge into environmental education while learning more about tribal sovereignty in this context. I am also curious about the ways that storytelling & learning our histories can propel us into action! Some other things I love: figure skating, writing bad poetry, learning the guitar, and backpacking.

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.
