Working with the Virginia Master Naturalist Program, Casey devoted her time to classroom studies and community service projects that included local outreach and education programs, conservation and restoration projects, and species inventory surveys.
As a high school student participating in many CBF field experiences, including Expedition Chesapeake in 2005, she had a unique opportunity to learn about the environment in a hands on and memorable way. She believes the only way to spread awareness is through experience and building individual connections. You can't develop a passion, love, or even respect for an environment you have never seen. She is honored and excited to be able to bridge this gap for any participant interested in learning what lies right outside our doors, and the role we all play in protecting it. A native of Rockingham County and the Shenandoah Valley, Casey is back home to teach our future environmental leaders.
