Hello! My name is Lisa and I am the Wilderness Outreach Intern at the Oregon Wild Portland office. In the fall, I will be heading into my final year at the University of California, Davis studying Environmental Science and Management with an emphasis in Natural Resource Management. When I’m not busy advocating for or conserving wilderness, I can be found exploring the many beautiful aspects of nature, with an emphasis on Oregon this summer as I learn more about this state that is practically new to me.
