Elizabeth McWhorter

“My experiences as a child peering into tide pools along Long Island Sound and taking nature walks throughout New England with my environmental scientist aunt, high school volunteer work at Mystic Aquarium (CT), and outdoor experiential education on California’s central coast in college, led to my interest in advocating for wildlife and habitat conservation. And now, I have two young children who are beach cleanup helpers and junior-citizen-scientists-in-training!”
