Alyssa grew up boating and hiking around Minnesota’s many lakes and rivers. It was through these childhood memories and environmental classes at the University of Minnesota that she realized how important it would be to protect these resources for future generations. Since graduating, she has worked for the Conservation Corps and Three Rivers Park District to support Minnesota’s native plant communities. In her spare time Alyssa enjoys hiking, biking, relaxing in her hammock and cooking. She is always happy to try a new outdoor activity. Alyssa is looking forward to being a part of the Do It Green community.
