Huron Pines AmeriCorps Member
Growing up in the Chicago suburb Oak Park, IL, Connor always felt that his urban environment clashed with an intrinsic pull toward nature and that eventually his path would lead him away from the city. He earned degrees in Conservation Biology and Environmental Studies from the University of Wisconsin – Madison and continued his search for new experiences with a wonderful study abroad program throughout Ecuador and a fieldwork internship with the BLM in Carson City, NV. Connor is excited to be back in the Midwest serving with the Leelanau Conservancy as a @Huron Pines AmeriCorps member where he’ll be assisting with land stewardship projects and GIS work. Connor looks forward to expanding his conservation experience in land and water protection and exploring the beautiful Leelanau Peninsula.
