This summer, Kacy will be working with Friends of the Riverfront and Allegheny Cleanways as a Natural Resources Management Intern through the Student Conservation Association. She is especially excited to work with volunteers and to assist with developing a Three Rivers Water Trail volunteer stewardship program. Originally from a small town outside of Philadelphia, Kacy recently moved to Pittsburgh this year after graduating from Drexel University in 2020 with a B.S. in Environmental Science. While studying at Drexel, she completed internships at Valley Forge National Historical Park, the Academy of Natural Sciences, and Willistown Conservation Trust. Kacy is most interested in community based conservation, environmental education, and watershed protection. By choosing a career in conservation, she hopes to inspire others to appreciate, respect, and learn about the natural world.
