Elizabeth Baer

Sustainability Fellow

Elizabeth (she/her) was born and raised in Seattle, Washington and loved spending lots of time exploring the Cascades and Washington Coast growing up. Volunteering at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle throughout high school, where she later worked over the summers in college, she was drawn to environmental education and community-based conservation. She is passionate about encouraging empathy for the environment through meaningful and positive experiences with both children and adults. She graduated from Trinity College, in Hartford Connecticut in May of 2022 with a BS in Environmental Science concentrating in Conservation Biology. Starting as a summer Sustainability Intern before moving into the role of the Fellow, she is so excited to be working with Walking Mountains and starting her career in environmentalism at such a great institution!

In her free time she loves to run (both road and trail), hike, ski, and kayak. She could not be more excited to be in the Eagle Valley and be a part of such a great community!
