Valley Forge National Historic Park
Megan grew up in Chalfont, Pennsylvania fostering a love of nature while playing in her backyard and gardening with her mom. Though she had always loved being outdoors, she didn't realize her passion for conservation and sustainability until college and beyond. At Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA, Megan studied international relations with a concentration in environmental issues and minored in sustainability studies. While in college, she was very active in her school's environmental activism group and gardening club, and taught environmental education at a local nature center. After graduating, she spent a summer doing hands-on conservation work as a community crew leader with the Student Conservation Association at Valley Forge National Historical Park, and then another two weeks at Lewis and Clark National Historical Park. During this time, she discovered her love for conservation and connecting people to their local environments through volunteer work, as well as a desire to learn more about working in the National Park Service. At Valley Forge, Megan is excited to continue engaging local communities in better understanding and protecting the public land they love.
