Hi everyone, I'm Lauren! I'm rejoining the Natural Areas team as an environmental education specialist for the 2023 season, after being a public engagement assistant during Summer 2022. I love spending time outside, reading, and meeting new people. I look forward to working with all volunteers! Please reach out to me if you have any questions! :)
