I’m Maggie Noriega and I’m studying forestry and restoration ecology at the University of Montana. I’m originally from Seattle, Washington. When I was 15 I started my conservation journey by working with the Yellowstone Youth Conservation Corps. After that, I knew what I wanted to do with my life and everything else fell into place! I went back to Yellowstone for another season, then spent a season with the SCA in the Tetons! Most recently I was in Rocky Mountain National Park as an NPS Academy intern with the SCA. Can you tell I love the West? I’m so excited to be back in Jackson, and am so happy to be surrounded by people who all have the same amount of passion and love for the environment!
Maggie was selected to participate in SHIFT’s Emerging Leaders Program in 2016.
