Liza Morse (FA'09) began her work as a conservationist a few years ago while working for the Mote Marine Lab on coral reef restoration projects. She now finds herself at the Vermont Center for Ecostudies, working as the coordinator for the Vernal Pool Monitoring program.

The Vermont Center for Ecostudies exists to "promote wildlife conservation through scientific research and citizen engagement," with many opportunities to get involved. Check it out.
