Petersburg National Battlefield

Meredith Courteau is the Community Volunteer Ambassador at Petersburg National Battlefield. Growing up in Northwest Indiana, her earliest memories are long summer days spent swimming in Lake Michigan and racing her siblings down sand dunes. She will be graduating from Indiana University-Bloomington with a BS in Recreation in May 2021. Meredith spent two summers (2017 & 2018) as a Cabin Leader at the Dunes Learning Center in Indiana Dunes National Park where she found her passion for connecting people to the outdoors. In her free time, Meredith enjoys hiking, reading, cooking, and exploring new places. Meredith is excited for the opportunity to work with Petersburg National Battlefield and aims to expand their volunteer opportunities, increase community engagement, and connect people to their natural resources. She can't wait to get started!
