Hello! My name is Emily, and I'm very excited to join the naturalist team this year! I grew up in Massachusetts, but I moved all the way across the country last year after graduating from UMass Amherst. Driven by my fascination of nature at a young age, I studied Environmental Science and Geography in college with a focus on pollination ecology. This allowed me to spend several summers researching and chasing native bees in Massachusetts, Greece, California, and most recently the prairies of western Washington. Aside from nerding out over plants and insects, I enjoy hiking around the Pacific Northwest's giant forests and mountains, playing the fiddle, and traveling to far-off lands.
