Charlotte Spence - Alliance for Watershed Education of the Delaware River

Charlotte Spence

“I have been interested in environmental justice and conservation for as long as I can remember. I dedicated my college education to learning about the environment, with a specific focus on agroecology and food justice, which is an aspect of environmental justice that I am very interested in. I was the chair of a board of students that oversaw the funding and management of sustainable projects in Oberlin, and I spent a lot of time working with the college and city communities on projects relating to environmental justice, resource conservation, and community engagement. I was interested specifically in the Alliance for Watershed Education Fellowship because I appreciate the work that is being done to connect young people with similar interests and goals to each other and to the environments that they are a part of. I knew that I wanted to be a part of a program that works to increase connectivity, engagement, and education across all communities of the Delaware River Watershed.”
