Featured EcoLeader

Sarah Minkin
Ohio University

This week’s Featured EcoLeader is Sarah Minkin, a graduate student in Environmental Studiesat Ohio University. In 2013 Sarah was awarded an NWF Emerging Leader Fellowship to support her work of developing and implementing nature-based and placed-based sustainability education curriculum through the creation of native and edible plant gardens both on campus an in the surrounding community. This “Campus Wildlife Project” was an aspect of a larger project that she is leading called “The Garden Classroom Project” which aims to increase sustainability and environmental literacy at Ohio University and in the Athens community. For her thesis research, Sarah focused on how environmental place-based education curriculum in elementary schools can be used to address issues of sustainability, climate change and community resilience. This fall, Sarah will continue her work at Ohio University as she also teaches and introduction to sustainability course. Congrats Sarah, keep up the great work!
