Meet Elena Bewick, EPIC's newest intern. Welcome to the team, Elena!
Elena is a third-year student at Cal Poly Humboldt majoring in environmental science with a focus on ecological restoration. She grew up in Santa Cruz, California, where she first became interested in environmental issues, and spent many days hiking in the forest, swimming in the bay, and getting involved with the local science community. She is particularly passionate about sustainable development, green infrastructure, and strengthening ecosystem protections. At EPIC, she hopes to gain experience working on current environmental issues, and make a positive impact on the health of California ecosystems.
When she’s not working or spending time in nature, Elena can usually be found with a fiddle in hand, learning a tune or jamming with other musicians. She also likes to cook, crochet, play mandolin and guitar, and do pretty much anything related to music.
